Solar System Comics ~ Jupiter & Saturn

During our Apologia Astronomy studies this year we have been amazed at the incredible “real outer worldly” astronomy happenings!

This week the Philae landed on a comet called 67P!  We have followed its progress the past few months and I was surprised how excited we both became when it actually landed 2 days ago!  What an outstanding epic journey so far!

Mission facts from BBC News

Philae lander

  • Travelled 6.4 billion km (four billion miles) to reach the comet
  • Journey took 10 years
  • Planning for the journey began 25 years ago

Comet 67P

  • More than four billion years old
  • Mass of 10 billion tonnes
  • Hurtling through space at 18km/s (40,000 mph)
  • Shaped like a rubber duck

We continued our own Solar System studies and here are our Jupiter & Saturn comic strips ~

Solar System Jupiter 001 Solar System Jupiter 002

Solar System Saturn 001 Solar System Saturn 002

And if you missed our earlier Solar System Comics, here they are ~

Here is a free blank comic strip page download ~ Solar System Comic notebooking pages.

These comic strips are actually such fun that one doesn’t realize that they are chock full of interesting facts and information!  Print them out for your kids to color in and read and enjoy!

Blessings,
