Today, I figured I’d make this post about space facts since we’ve been celebrating the moon landing!

  • Mercury & Venus are the only 2 planets in our solar system that have no moons

  • In total, there are 176 confirmed moons that orbit the planets in our solar system, with some of them being bigger than Mercury itself

  • If a star passes too close to a black hole, it can be torn apart

  • The hottest planet in our solar system is Venus

  • Our solar system is 4.6 billion years old

(Well, give or take 30 million years(ish). Accurately speaking, it is 4.571 billion years old.

Scientists estimate that in about 5 billion years, our Sun will expand becoming a Red Giant.

In about 7.5 billion years its expanding surface will swallow up and engulf the Earth.)

Hope you enjoyed today’s facts!

I have a doctor’s appointment today – wish me luck! (It’s just a follow up for the colonoscopy I had over a month ago.)

The heat wave is finally over!! For now anyway, so my brain is back to normal! (I don’t seem to be able to think straight when it’s sweltering outside!) And the house isn’t sweltering!! Well, it didn’t get that hot in the house, actually cooler than outside – so that’s a bonus! It’s just hard to keep it regulated when you’re not home!

Anyway, hope everyone has a great day!
