Earth, our beautiful planet, is the third planet from the Sun. It has water on the surface, air we can breathe, and comfortable temperatures. This may be why it's the only planet that currently has life on it. When seen from space, Earth looks like a blue ball with land that is brown and green and clouds that are white.
