Our Solar System

Our solar system is comprised of our star, the Sun, and everything bound to it by gravity — the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, overshadow planets, for example, Pluto, many moons and a large number of space rocks, comets, and meteoroids. Past our own nearby planetary group, we have found a large number of planetary frameworks circling different stars in the Milky Way.
