2014 UZ224?Edit

what would warrant inclusion of 2014 UZ224 in this article? Or is it just that no one has gotten around to it? Wingspan Shadow (talk) 15:22, 24 October 2018 (UTC)

What's notable about it to warrant inclusion here? It's just a mid-sized SDO. It's not here for the same reasons, e.g., Salacia and Varda are absent. Tbayboy (talk) 02:54, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Insert this image of the solar systemEdit

I think this image shows a great overview of the entire solar system, with all the planets and most of their moons, as well as some asteroids and trojans. In the picture all the bodies are in log-scale measured in earth radius. — Preceding [[Wikipedia:Signatures|Dawierha (talk) 09:34, 8 March 2019 (UTC)]] comment added by Dawierha (talkcontribs) 09:30, 8 March 2019 (UTC) — Preceding [[Wikipedia:Signatures|Dawierha (talk) 09:34, 8 March 2019 (UTC)]] comment added by Dawierha (talkcontribs) 09:27, 8 March 2019 (UTC) --Dawierha (talk) 09:32, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

It's hard for the eye to scan. Whoever made it needs to learn how to make colours pop and some basic layout. Serendipodous 10:41, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
No thanks, it looks super messy. — JFG talk 13:23, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

Could you please elaborate on what you think is wrong with it?

I think t shows very clearly a lot of the interesting objects of the solar system in one image and it can quickly give you a nic overview of the entire solar system. It also shows a great deal of details which can spark a curiosity for new people to get more interested in the solar system and astronomy. Dawierha (talk) 00:38, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Problem with this articleEdit

I did a change to this article for a mistake of data about the nearest planetary system to the solar system, but I did some bad process and the article is wrong right now. I need help to fix it. I do not know to do it. I am sorry. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nosttradamuz (talkcontribs) 01:22, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

It's not a mistake. The nearest planetary system is Proxima Centauri's, as the article states. It is also the nearest star. The only known planet or disc in the AC star system only orbits Proxima. Tbayboy (talk) 17:17, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
