Bode's Law is one such pattern. Most of our planets, except Neptune, follow it. It gives predictions for the distances of objects from the sun. This law was published by Johann Elert Bode.

Bode's law goes something like this:

Distance from the Sun (Astronomical Units)

Mercury - 0.4 = 4/10

Venus - 0.7 = (4+3)/10

Earth - 1.0 = (4+ 3*2)/10

Mars - 1.6 = (4+ 3*2*2)/10

Ceres (a dwarf planet) - 2.8 = (4+ 3*2*2*2)/10

### What is the distance between planets?

The distances between the planets vary all the time since they all orbit the Sun at different rates.

### Is Jupiter between a planet?

Yes, it's between all the other planets.

### What pattern is there between all of the planets?

Mercury is the hottest and Neptune is the coldest. The further away the planet is to the sun, the colder it is. Edit: That's not too bad an answer, but actually Venus is hotter than Mercury because of the "greenhouse effect". Also Neptune is about the same temperature as Uranus. Another pattern is that the 4 inner planets are small and rocky, but the 4 outer ones are "Gas Giant" planets.

### What makes the planets orbit around the sun?

The gravitational pull between the planets and the sun keep the planets orbiting the sun all day everyday.

### Why planets and moons of planets stay in their orbits?

The forces of gravity between two masses are the cause of all orbits.

### How do the distances between inner planets compare to distances between the outer planets?

The distances between the inner planets is smaller than the distances between the outer planets.

### How do the distances between inner planets compare to the distances between the outer planets?

The distances between the inner planets is smaller than the distances between the outer planets.

### Which planets move in an elliptical pattern?

They all do. Some planets are closer to a circular orbit than others (have a lower eccentricity), but none are exactly circular.

### What is a force that only acts between planets?

There is no such force. All forces that act on planets work on smaller particles as well.

### What is the difference between asterism and constellations?

This is a very good question - the difference between an asterism and constellation is this: a constellation is a pattern of stars that identifies a complete object, animal or character. An asterism is a pattern of stars that is NOT a constellation.

### When was Between Planets created?

Between Planets was created in 1951.

### What are the distances between planets greater between the inner or outer planets?

The inner planets are closer together than the outer planets are.
