What to See Out in Space with Your Telescope

by trg

If you are an avid fan of outer space and science fiction, you might want to see what is really in space. The universe is full of surprises, and you can never really see what is out there with just your naked eye -having a telescope, though, might help you see a glimpse of the universe.
We all know what planets and we have all seen and we have all studied the different planets all throughout our life, in the classroom, on the internet and in related books we read, but we rarely see the planets with our own eyes.If you want to see the planets personally, you can always buy a telescope.  Start with a telescope for beginners, and when you feel like you want to see more of the universe, then you can consult a telescope guide to help fill your longing.

The solar system as we all know has eight planets; there were nine back then but Pluto is no longer considered as a planet, it is now considered as a dwarf planet, along with Ceres, Haumea, Makemake, Eris and Sedna. If you forgot the eight planets here they are in order of which is closest to the sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Gas giants, ice giants and rock giants, are all out there, and you just have to see them with your own eyes to understand why they are really called gas giants, ice giants and rock giants. An example of rock giants in space is Earth. Other rock giants in space are Mercury, Venus and Mars. The gas giants of space are Jupiter and Saturn, although Uranus and Neptune are considered as ice giants, the category ice giants is under gas giants, so Uranus and Neptune are also gas giants.

Dwarf planets are not as big as the planets, they are objects distinct from planets. There are five dwarf planets classified as of today.  There was supposed to be a sixth dwarf planet, Theia. Theia was believed to have crashed to Earth back in the old days, in what is believed by some scientists to be the origin of the Earth’s moon.

Planets and dwarf planets are not the only things in space, there are many objects in the universe that is left a mystery. Being curious about it is what will make it seem less mysterious in the future, and as long as there are people wanting to know what is out there and is willing to search the universe’s mystery, it would soon be discovered.
