The Solar System is just a planetary system in the vast universe. That planet system has the Sun at its center and eight planets with nearly circular orbits within the Sun’s gravity range. Earth – the third planet of the 8 planets orbiting the Sun that is the largest of the solid planets (there are 4 planets in this group including Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars).Our blue planet is Earth with a diameter of 12.742 km. The Sun is a giant Fireball with a diameter of 109 times the diameter of the Earth. The Sun is the largest object in the Solar System that can hold 820,000 Piles of earth inside it. The distance between the Sun and the Earth is 1 AU approximately equal to 149. 597. 870,700 km that is an astronomical measurement unit to measure distances in space.

Imagine you were able to shrink the Sun to the size of a basketball. At that point, the Earth would be reduced to the size of a sesame seed. That’s how massive our star is
