The Science Guy looks to outer space in Bill Nye the Science Guy: Planets, as he examines the features of the solar system. While it is possible to see the nearby planets without a telescope, the others are too far away to see with the naked eye. Astronomers can see them, however, and provide constantly updated information about the planets. Nye explains why the appearance of each planet is different and traces its path around the sun. As usual, his trademark humor helps to enliven the scientific discussion and create a fun learning atmosphere. ~ Alice Day, Rovi
