The Solar System

The solar system consists of:

  • A central star called the Sun giving off heat and light​​​​​​​
  • Eight planets moving round it in circles called orbits

The force of gravity keeps the planets in orbit.

Other objects in the solar system include asteroids, comets and dwarf planets.

The picture and video below will help you remember the order of the planets.
