We went to the amazing stardome

Today we all got to go to the Stardome obsevatory at One Tree Hill in Auckland. We saw a show called "The Cardboard Rocket" and got to travel through space visiting all the planets in our Solar System.
We learnt lots of exciting things and would like to share some of them with you.
J.B - I learnt that Mars was red because there is iron in the stones and it is rusty
R.T- I thought the rings around Saturn were made out of glass but they are made out of rocks
A.H- The Earth is called the Goldilocks planet because it's "just right"
C.S- There is more planets than there used to be
S.D- Pluto is a tiny dot
C.R- Jupiter is the biggest planet and it is made out of gas
R.Z- Earth is called "goldilocks" because it's not too hot and it's not too cold
E.F- I learnt that some planets have dust around them
I.Y- I learnt that the sun could be very hot and Mercury was closest to the sun so it was very hot
N.L- Mercury is the closest planet to the sun
O.P -The sun is really big and you can't land it and it's really hot
