Astronomers have spotted a strange new solar system approximately 2,000 light years away, with small planets packed in close orbit to their sun.

The team at NASA named the system Kepler 11, after the orbiting Kepler space telescope that spotted it.

This secondary classroom resource is designed for Year 7, 8 and 9 science lessons. It can be used as part of the accompanying lesson plan, created for Teachers TV, which includes activities and extension tasks based on this topic. In this lesson plan, pupils will learn about our solar system.
