The Nine Planets
http://www.seds.org/billa/tnp/

A+ CONTENT:
Herein lies a mini-encyclopedia our Solar System, as well as information about other solar systems too.

B+ AESTHETICS:
This site looks great, and offers great photographs, both small and large. Pages (understandably) take a while to load.

A ORGANIZATION:
From the Home Page, a very clear hierarchy of pages unfold, all accessible from there.

REVIEW:
This is an outstanding resource for students and teachers to know about. Explore the nine planets as well as all moons, comets, asteroids, and meteors... The links about each planet explain geographical data, as well as other facts such as explorations there (including descriptions of the spacecraft used). Large graphics are available at the bottom of the page. A glossary of terms is also easily accessible. There is such a wealth of information here that students can really explore and create unique and creative reports.
