Three New Planets – level 2

Recently, a NASA satellite found three new planets that are about 73 light-years away. They are interesting because they intermediate and similar in size.

In our solar system, there are either small planets like Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars or really big planets like Jupiter and Saturn. Also, the size of the new planets is intermediate, which is something new. When it comes to their size and composition, they are somewhere between Earth and Neptune. Scientists say that the planets can be a missing type of planets.

Difficult words: intermediate (middle), composition (the material of something).
