WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT US

Our Planet has lots to offer from 12,000 pound mammals to some of the most beautiful natural environments. We have a variety of terrains, from beaches, mountains, deserts, glaciers, and Rain Forests. There are many different species of animals and marine life that can be seen in their natural habitats. If someone asked you what the largest living structure on Earth is, we’re sure you wouldn’t say it was it was coral reefs. However, the community of living organisms, which are constructed from millions of tiny polyps are the planet’s biggest structure, with some even visible from space! If you plan on taking a trip to the Coral Reef we recommend you bring sunscreen, flip flops, shorts, a t shirt, and a bathing suit!! We also have pizza here so if that doesn't win you over I don't know what will.

ABOUT OUR PLANET

The formation of the Solar System began 4.6 billion years ago with the gravitational collapse of a small part of a giant molecular cloud Most of the collapsing mass collected in the center, forming the Sun, while the rest flattened into a protoplanetary disk out of which the planets, moons, asteroids, and other small Solar System bodies formed.Earth is the third planet from the Sun, the densest planet in the Solar System, the largest of the Solar System's four terrestrial planets, and the only astronomical object known to harbor life. The circumference of Earth at the equator is about 24,902 miles (40,075 km), but from pole-to-pole — the meridional circumference — Earth is only 24,860 miles (40,008 km) around. This shape, caused by the flattening at the poles, is called an oblate spheroid because it has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly round) shape. The total surface area of Earth is about 197 million square miles (509 million square km). About 71 percent is covered by water and 29 percent by land. The Earth gets it's energy through nuclear fusion from the Sun. This happens when two atoms of hydrogen combine to form a helium atom and a lot of energy is released in the process.

OUR MOON

The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite. It is one of the largest natural satellites in the Solar System, and, among planetary satellites, the largest relative to the size of the planet it orbits.
It’s possible Earth had more than one moon in the past, millions or even billions of years ago. Strange terrain on the far side of the Moon could be explained by a second moon crashing into it, depositing a layer of material tens of kilometers deep.

CLIMATE AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT

Rotation is the spinning of Earth on its axis and the cause of night and day. Each rotation equals 24 hours, and since the Earth is roughly 24,000 miles in circumference, that means we are spinning about 1,000 miles per hour! Revolution is the period of time it takes for the Earth to orbit the sun at a speed of 66,000 miles per hour, in one year. It takes Earth 365.25 days to make one complete orbit. That leaves one extra day every four years that we call leap day or year.Earth's axis is tilted about 23.5 degrees and THIS is the reason for the four seasons: Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring. The weather in each of the four seasons differs by a lot. Considering this, you may want to bring a variety of clothing. Sunglasses will be needed almost year round! You'll need to pack warm clothing like long pants and warm coats for fall and winter, and lighter clothing like jeans and a t-shirt for Summer and Spring.
