Neptune has a ring like Saturn that we can’t see in photographs. The Moon’s real name is Luna. The oldest planet, Methuselah, is 12.7 billion years old. The word “planet” is Greek for “wanderer.” Asteroids can have moons. A comet’s tail is about ten million kilometres long. When a Black Hole tears something apart, it’s called spaghettification.
