A little on Mars

The planet next in line is the planet Mars.
Mars is a lot like earth in that it has volcanoes, mountains and valleys.
But Mars is different from the earth because it has a thin layer of atmosphere and no oxygen.
Mars has two moons Phobos and Deimos. (Neither look much like moons.)
It takes two earth years for Mars to orbit the sun and and day on Mars is equal to 687 earth days.
Mars is always 81 degrees below zero. And the hottest it gets is 32 so my sister, Erin,(who doesn't like the cold)is glad we do not live there.
All though Mars is so cold it is closer to earth temperatures then any other planet.
Just like the earth Mars is at a tilt and so it has four different seasons:
Very Cold; A Little Warmer(32 degrees); Getting Colder and Very Cold Again. Just kidding!
But it does have four seasons.
