Molten Planet
An illustration showing a primitive terrestrial planet, more properly called a protoplanet, in the process of formation. We view the newborn world from its troubled surface, and a whole host of similar worlds is visible in the sky before us. This ima...

Blue Ice
... 50 full Moons. However, when Triton is between the Sun and Neptune, as in this picture, the only illumination comes from the planet itself. Neptune then provides only about as much light as 0.9 full Moons, dying the Tritonian landscape a nice shade o ...

Blue Mars
In this movie, the lowland areas of Mars are covered in a blue sea. Mars' two moons, Phobos and Deimos, are seen transiting across the planet in that order. It is thought that liquid water existed on Mars millions of years ago, but it is now too cold...
