    There are those who believe that life here, began out there, far across the
    universe, with tribes of humans, who may have been the forefathers of the
    Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that they may yet be
    brothers of man, who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the
    heavens.

    And did you miss that the sun isn't a planet at all, and that the moon
    isn't considered a planet currently? The only planets visible to the
    naked eye (and that's even neglecting light pollution) are the
    original 5: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. What Minimal

    put into a small thimble and still leave room for the average human
    adult's legs and one arm.

    It _is_ possible to see Uranus naked eye, and it was almost certainly
    seen occasionally in ancient times. But being only at the edge of
    visibility, and moving very slowly against the background stars, its
    status as a planet (in any sense of the word) was apparently not noticed
    until the 18th Century.
