Where do the planets

get their colors?

Have you ever wondered where the planets get their colors? I chose this topic because I wondered why Neptune and Uranus are so blue. So I just said why not discover all the other planets too.
Did you know the planets get their colors because of what they are made of? Mercury is made of rock . So Mercury is a brownish color. Neptune and Uranus are blus\e because of the gas inside of them. Earth is blue and green because it is made of water ,dirt, and rock. So it is kind of brown too. That is how the planets get their colors.
The most interesting fact that I that I learned was that the planets get their colors because of what they are made of. Somthing that suprised me was that there was not a book on this topic. Somthing I would still like to know is why is mars so rusted?
