The smallest planet in our solar system is Mercury and the largest planet is Jupiter.
Which is the smallest planet?
If we put our planets in ‘size order’ they would be listed as the following, from large to small: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Earth, Venus, Mars, and Mercury. Since we lost Pluto as an official planet, it appears that Mercury is now considered the smallest planet in the solar system.
What are the sizes of the planets from least to greatest?
Planet Sizes (Largest To Smallest):
- Jupiter – (diameter = 142,800 km)
- Saturn – (diameter = 120,660 km)
- Uranus – (diameter = 51,118 km)
- Neptune – (diameter -= 49,528 km)
- Earth – (diameter = 12,756 km)
- Venus – (diameter = 12,104 km)
- Mars – (diameter = 6787 km)
- Mercury – (diameter = 4879.4 km)
Is Neptune the largest or smallest planet?
Neptune is the fourth largest planet in our Solar System and it is the smallest of the giant gas planets. Neptune has a diameter of 34,503 miles (55,528) kilometers. Its volume is 57.7 times the volume of Earth which means that 57 Earths could fit inside of Neptune with a little room left over.
