The Solar System and Mythology
As we've been studying the solar system, I've realized how often the names of stars, moons, and even planets are in mythology (of all sorts).
I decided to spend my free time looking up a few of them and I made a list:
.Olympus Mon (Mount Olympus in Latin)
I didn't really explain, but if you were curious most of these are related to Greek Mythology, but not all.
If you want more information on any of these, leave a comment and I'll get back to you.

I had heard that all of the planets were named after Greek/Roman god or goddesses except for Earth, but you have Earth listed here- do you know where the name for our lovely blue marble comes from?? :)
