solar system project
by- Daisy Valerio
range of diameter- 4.6 hours (the time it takes to rotate or spin once). Ida makes a complete orbit around the sun (a year in this asteroid's time) in 4.8 Earth years.
location in solar system- Most Asteroids orbit our sun, a star, in a region of space between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter known as the Asteroid Belt.
one example and year of discovery-
- Comet Halley makes an appearance in the Bayeux Tapestry from the year 1066, which chronicles the overthrow of King Harold by William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings.
period of revolution- One day on comet Halley varies between 2.2 to 7.4 Earth days
- Days and years vary on dwarf planets. One day on Ceres, for example, takes about nine hours (the time it takes for Ceres to rotate or spin once).
type of surfaces and diameter-Dwarf planets are solid rocky and/or icy bodies, The amount of rock vs. ice depends on their location in the solar system.
period of revolution-Ceres makes a complete orbit around the sun (a year in Ceresian time) in about 4.60 Earth years.
