Y is also for… yoosless information!

yOk, so I cheated a bit here, but I was a bit stuck for Y!  Did you know….

Six of our solar system’s planets, including Earth, rotate anti-clockwise. The odd ones out are Venus, which rotates clockwise, and Uranus which spins on its side.

Mercury and Venus are the only planets in our solar system to have no moons. While Earth has only one, Jupiter and Saturn have more than 60 each.

If you hate storms, be grateful that we don’t have the worst weather in the solar system. The distinctive red spot that can be seen on Jupiter is actually a huge storm. Although scientist believe it is slowly shrinking, it still covers an area of approximately 20,000 Km x 12,000 Km and has been raging for over 300 years!
