We cannot deny that most of us have an inherent curiosity for all things that are yet to be explained by science. One of the topics that instantly gets us on the edge of our seats is فلکیات (falkiat) or astronomy. With that said, this post will walk you through the planet names in Urdu as well as the other terminologies that will be useful to you whenever you speak about the universe. After all, the native speakers are always interested to know your perceptions about some of their famed Pakistani astronomers. If you are ready for that, then keep reading below!
The space beyond Earth's atmosphere remains to be one of the most fascinating things for many of us. Regardless of one's age, most of us have this burning desire to express our opinions, beliefs, and theories related to Earth and how the planets came to be. Seeing that there is so much interest in this field, governments, private institutions, and universities across the globe are looking for ways to support students and enthusiasts in their desire to learn about the world around us.
In the case of Pakistan, the field of astronomy appears to be flourishing thanks to the help of multiple amateur astronomy societies and the Space & Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO). Through their initiatives and scholastic programs, they were able to encourage the youth to take on the challenge of becoming qualified astronomers and paleontologists. So if you are planning to visit Pakistan or speak with native speakers, one topic that can serve as a great starting point is astronomy. You can also impress them by using the words we will cover in the sections below. Let's get started!
The world is always changing. If one thing remains constant, then that would undoubtedly be the planets in our solar system. In Urdu, the word planet is translated as سیارے, which is pronounced as sayaray. In the table below, we will go over the eight major planets.
|Mars||مُریخ||Marreekh / Mirreekh|
|Jupiter||مُشتری||Mushtari / Mishtari|
|Saturn||زحل||Zohal / Zuhal|
Now that you know the basic translations for the planet names in the Urdu language let's extend your knowledge further by learning about the names of dwarf planets, including Pluto. We understand that some might argue that Pluto is a planet, but there's also a lot of evidence that states that it should only have a minor-planet designation.
