I need help with a report about...


Our Star
The sun is a star, a hot ball of glowing gases at the heart of our solar system. Its influence extends far beyond the orbits of distant Neptune and Pluto. Without the sun's intense energy and heat, there would be no life on Earth. And though it is special to us, there are billions of stars like our sun scattered across the Milky Way galaxy.

Computer-generated image of Juno spacecraft at Jupiter.
  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.
