  79. Huge,  empty  and  dominated  by  the  Sun.   If  the

     earth  is  a  peppercorn,  Jupiter  is  a  walnut  and   the  Sun  is  a  beach  ball.   It  is  oben  what  we  cannot  see  (magneXsm,  UV)  that   is  important  in  astronomy. THE  SOLAR  SYSTEM
  80. Billions  of  tonnes  of  material  moving  at  millions  of  

    miles  per  hour!   Charged  parXcles  excite  molecules  in  the   atmosphere  to  create  the  colours.   An  auroral  oval  that  shrinks  and  grows  with  the  solar   wind. THE  AURORA
