Eclipse of Venus -- NASA’s Picture of the Day on Aug.20, 2013. Usually it is the Earth’s Moon that eclipses the Sun. Last June, most unusually, the planet Venus took a turn. Pictured above during the occultation, the Sun was imaged in three colors of ultraviolet light by the Earth-orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory, with the dark region toward the right corresponding to a coronal hole. The next Venusian solar eclipse will occur in 2117.

This colorful view of Mercury was produced by using images from Messenger's color base map imaging campaign which enhance the chemical, mineralogical, and physical differences between the rocks that make up the planet's gray pock-marked moon-like surface

Venus is one unique planet when it comes to rotational motion. It takes Venus 243 Earth days to completely rotate on its axis, but just 225 days to orbit the sun. Venus also is one of two planets that rotates in reverse, a phenomenon called retrograde motion, which according to most theories is due to an ancient planetary collision.

Venus - one day is longer than its entire year. It takes Venus 243 Earth days to completely rotate on its axis, but just 225 days to orbit the sun. Venus is one of two planets that rotates in reverse, called retrograde motion.

Neptune is the 8th and last planet of the solar system, as Pluto was categorized as a dwarf-planet a few years ago. Dark, cold, and whipped by supersonic winds, Neptune is the furthest away from the Sun of the hydrogen and helium gas giants in our Solar System. No probe has ever been sent there, and its thick atmosphere acts as a dark veil to the surface below.

Voyager 1 Space Probe reaches new frontier 33 years after launch, with beautiful photographs of  Io, one of Jupiter's moons.   Ed Stone, Voyager Project Scientist, Caltech, said:  "Finding a moon that's 100 times more active volcanically than the entire Earth,

Jupiter’s moon Io from Voyager 1 Space Probe

This global view of Jupiter's moon, Io, was obtained during the tenth orbit of Jupiter by NASA's Galileo spacecraft. Io, which is slightly larger than Earth's Moon, is the most volcanically active body in the solar system.
