Since Pluto is no longer considered a planet, Mercury is now the smallest one in our planetary system. You can picture the sizes of all the planets of the Solar System in comparison with Earth:

  • Jupiter – 1,120% the size of Earth
  • Saturn – 945% the size of Earth
  • Uranus – 400% the size of Earth
  • Neptune – 388% the size of Earth
  • Venus – 95% the size of Earth
  • Mars – 53% the size of Earth
  • Mercury – 38% the size of Earth

Amazing! Can you imagine such extra large objects like Jupiter? That is just mind-blowing! And each day on Mercurylasts as long as 58 days and 15 hours on Earth. Have any other interesting fact about the Solar System to share? You are welcome to tell us in the comments!
