The Sun and its orbital components make up the Solar System, which is a gravitationally bound system.
The Solar System was formed by the gravitational collapse of a massive interstellar molecular cloud 4.6 billion years ago.
Component of the solar system
Asteroids- Large chunks of rock or metal that orbit the Sun are found between Mars and Jupiter. These large rocks are known as asteroids. The region between Mars and Jupiter where these are found is known as the asteroid belt.
Satellites- Satellites are celestial objects that orbit planets and are part of the solar system. The Moon is the Earth's satellite.
Comets- Comets are little ice objects with unusual shapes. They mainly come from the Kuiper Belt, which is located beyond Neptune in the solar system's far reaches.
Planet- A planet is a massive celestial body that revolves in a fixed orbit around the sun. Our solar system has eight planets. The following are the planets in order to their distance from the sun:
Dwarf planets- Dwarf planets are objects that orbit the sun at various points and are smaller than planets but larger than asteroids. Ceres, a dwarf planet in the asteroid belt, is the closest dwarf planet to us.
