One of the celestial bodies moving round the sun like our earth-the planets whose orbits are within those of the earth are called inferior-viz., Mercury, Venus; those without that of the earth superior-viz., Mars, the Asteroids, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune; the smaller planets are called asteroids.
By Stormonth, James, Phelp, P. H.
n. [Latin, Greek] A celestial body which revolves about the sun in an orbit of a moderate degree of eccentricity—usually classified as inferior, or those within the orbit of the earth, as Mercury and Venus; and superior, or those beyond the earth's orbit, as Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
