DIAMETER OF MARS


Mars has huge craters and canyons. One canyon on mars is as long as the continental united state and 6.5 kilometers (4 miles) deep.
Mars has the highest volcanoes in the solar system. Some are three times higher than Mount Everest.
Wind and dust storms on mars can engulf the entire planet in red dust. These storms can last more than 2 week at a time.
Mars, the fourth planet from the sun, is half the size of earth. It looks red because it is covered by the deep layer of rusted iron dust.

DIAMETER = 6,794 KM
YEAR LENGTH = 687 DAYS
MOON = 2
