A Solar System Photo Gallery


The above pages collect an illustrative image of each planet, satellite, and minor body in the solar system that has been imaged to date. As much as possible, the images selected are visible light true color (or visible black and white), although in most cases the images are contrast enhanced and adjusted in brightness.

This compilation includes images of 83 objects: 8 planets, 2 dwarf planets, 44 planetary satellites, 3 dwarf planet satellites, 18 asteroids, 2 asteroid satellites, and 6 comet nuclei.
