Now research the temperatures of the planets and list them in order of their average temperatures. You will find that the listing coincides with the order of the planets in terms of distance from the sun; thus you can begin to realize that the temperature pattern is analogous to the relationship of your hands to the bulb.

You might be interested in reading about the asteroids found between Mars and Jupiter. And then again, you might not. I think it's pretty interesting. An asteroid, says the CCE, is "a small, usually irregularly shaped body orbiting the sun, most often at least partially between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Ceres * is the largest asteroid (diameter is 470 miles) and was the first discovered....Asteroids may be fragments of a planet shattered in the remote past; material that failed to condense into a single planet; or material from the nuclei of old comets....The Apollo asteroids cross the earth's orbit; they may be the cause of the earth's several meteorite craters and are a possible location for future mining." There are more than 2,000 known asteroids, most of them having been discovered by photograph.
* Ceres is the Roman goddess of grain.
