Question: I need the seven objects that make up our solar system for my astronomy homework, however, every time I try to find the answer on google, I get more than seven, or only five, and the answers are totally different in each result that I get. Can anyone help me with this?

The answer to this question really depends on you. Is this high school homework, college or possibly university? 99% of our solar solar system is all the hydrogen and helium and other elements that make up our sun. The other 1% is everything else. the planets, asteroids, etc.

Unfortunately, there are several possible answers. For example, you might choose Sun terrestrial planets Gas giants Satellites of 2 and 3 Dwarf planets & asteroids Oort cloud objects Dust or you might combine the terrestrial and Jovian planets in one category, and split asteroids and dwarf planets into separate categories, and so on. Sorry - there really isn't an answer to your question.

You need to remember the pneumonic device: My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. M (for My) =Mercury V (for Very) = Venus E (for Excellent) = Earth M (for Mother) = Mars J (for Just) = Jupiter S (for Served) = Saturn U (for Us) = Uranus N (for Nine) = Neptune P (for Pizza) = Plute (NO LONGER CONSIDERED A PLANET)
