The Swiftest Planet
Sun-scorched Mercury is only slightly larger than Earth's moon. Like the moon, Mercury has very little atmosphere to stop impacts, and it is covered with craters. Mercury's dayside is super-heated by the sun, but at night temperatures drop hundreds of degrees below freezing. Ice may even exist in craters. Mercury's egg-shaped orbit takes it around the sun every 88 days.

  1. Go to Eyes on the Solar System - http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/eyes
  2. Choose your mission or destination
  3. Use the controls to pose the spacecraft, planet or moon like you want it.
  4. Take a screenshot (such as the one of Juno at Jupiter to the right).
    • In Windows 7, the snipping tool is very good.
    • In Windows XP, use "print-screen" key and paste into a photo editing program.
    • On a Mac, the "Grab" tool is great for screenshots.
