Colors of planets

posted on 26th of february, 2008

Creating the graphic work for DT discover the colorful variety in our cosmic life. There are many illustrations and even photos of space, earth and planets on dreamstime, that I have been wondering is there a chance to find all of the planets from great Solar System. For beginning I want to remind the System. In increasing distance from the sun there are: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Mercury is the smallest planet in the system, it is similar in appearance to our Moon.
Venus is the second-closest planet to the Sun, the brightest natural object in the night sky, except for the Moon, that is way it is so light bright grey colored.
Earth is the most known planet for us, it very colorful because of it natural live most of it is blue.

Mars with its to satellites is called as “Red Planet” because of its reddish appearance as seen from Earth, but in fact it is more colorful with some blue caps and textured surface.

Jupiter is the largest planet of the system and have got sixty tree satellites. It seems that its surface is created from some brown gases
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and second largest planet in system with sixty satellites and beautiful prominent system of rings.

Uranus has also the ring system and numerous moons – satellites. Planet is delicate light blue colored like ice ball.
The last one is Neptune with its thirteen satellites. It is beautiful blue planet because of it atmosphere compositions.

I think there are lots of illustrations/photos of those specific planets in our stock it should gave us illustrators the reason to show creativity.
Good luck
