I have a really good book that has a page devoted to each of the planets and the sun, but I will look for a site right now. Okay, here.

http://www.gsfc.nasa.gov/

What you do is type in the planet in the search box. I only did it for Mercury and Venus, but I am sure it has all of them. The good ones say NASA - (insert planet name here) I think. Sometimes there are more than one of those, just check out them all until you find the good one. But I just found this, it is the same thing, but a more direct link. It has all of the planets and other things.

http://www.nasa.gov/worldbook/

Hope that helps!

How much reach-for-the-stars knowledge will help you in this event?
Probably not that much, there's not going to be stars or constellations or anything. They might have stellar classification of the Sun and other nearby stars, and absorption and emission spectra are a distant possibility, but other than that it's mostly planets' features, Kepler's Laws, the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud, etc.

Evidently there's supposed to be a bit abt the sun... but probably more abt sunspots and solor flares than we ever had to know abt for stars...

I'm actully rlly excited. I LOVED Stars, but I think learning abt the planets and such is just as important.

How much do you guys think we will need to know about comets and meteors? I mean every event proctor different, but what do you think on average? Thanks a million! :mrgreen:
