This is the template documentation page for {{Infobox Planet/doc}}.
It is not necessarily intended to be viewed directly. If it uses variables, some links may appear broken. Do not replace these variables with hardcoded page names or URLs.

Also known as Infobox Small, Medium, or Large Lump of Rock, Gas, or Ice, possibly Spherical, that May (or May Not) be a Planet.

This template has been designed to hold information on planets (including extrasolar planets), dwarf planets, moons and minor planets. Some parameters will not be applicable to individual types; these parameters can be removed from the template call without any problems occurring. It is recommended that the comment in the usage section be copied to the top of the article page.

Notes

  • To display the Discovery section, call the template with discovery=yes.
  • To display the Physical characteristics section, call the template with physical_characteristics=yes.
  • To display the Temperatures section, call the template with temperatures=yes.
  • To display the Atmosphere section, call the template with atmosphere=yes.
  • For Minor planets call the template with minorplanet=yes. This modifies several headings and their wikilinks to be minor-planet specific.
