The largest star is the Pistol Star. It is 100 times bigger than our Sun. It is 148.78 million Km away from Earth.



Our Solar System is the part of the Universe.

The universe is a vast space size of which is unknown. It contains matter and energy in the form of galaxies, stars, and planets. Astronomers believed that a powerful explosion that occurred about 13.7 billion years ago causes the universe to expand outwards. This explosion is known as Big Bang.

Scientists can find out whether an object shifts towards the Earth or moves away from the Earth. This is the Doppler Shift.


A cluster of stars, dust, and gas held together by the force of gravity is known as Galaxy. The shape of the Galaxies may vary. The shape of some Galaxies may be of irregular shape, elliptical, spiral, etc.

The name of our Galaxy is Milky Way Galaxy. It is also called as Akash Ganga.

The shape is spiral. In the middle of our Galaxy, there exists a giant black hole. The name of the nearest galaxy is Andromeda.

Planets of our Solar System

There is a controversy about the number of planets in our galaxy. There are 8 numbers planets in our Solar System.

The names of the planets from the Sun are:

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

The inner four planets closest to the Sun-Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are called Terrestrial planets. The surfaces of these planets are rocky. The last four planets, i.e. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are called as Gas giants. These planets are of enormous size. Hence, these are also called Jovian or Jupiter-like planets. Mostly, they are made of gases- hydrogen and helium.


Mercury that is the smallest planet in our solar system, rotates around the Sun in 88 days. It is the smallest planet. The day temperature of Mercury is 4500c. The night temperature is minus 1800c.


This is the second planet from the Sun. This is hotter than Mercury. The average temperature is 4650c. Venus is an example of the greenhouse effect.

It is also called as Morning star or Evening star.


Earth, the third planet from the Sun, is called Blue Planet. Two-thirds of this planet is covered by water. There are nitrogen and oxygen in the atmosphere of the Earth.

It takes 23 hours and 56 minutes to rotate around its axes and 365.24 days to rotate around the Sun.

It has one natural satellite, called Moon which is 384,400 Km away from the Earth. The gravitational pull on Moon is 1/6th of that of the Earth.


The fourth planet is Mars which is a desert-like place. The surface of Mars is rocky like Earth’s surface and is called Red Planet.

It has two numbers Moons.

It takes 24 hours and 37 minutes to rotate around its axes and 687 Earth days to rotate around the Sun.


The fifth planet, Jupiter, is the greatest planet in our Solar System which takes 9.8 Earth years to rotate around the Sun and takes 9.8 earth hours to rotate around its axes. It has 75 numbers Moons and has a strong magnetic field.

It takes 9.8 Earth hours to rotate around its axes and 11.9 Earth years to rotate around the Sun.


Saturn, the sixth planet from the Sun, and consists of 75% Hydrogen and 25% Helium. The second-largest planet in our solar system takes 10.7 hours to rotate around its axes and 29 Earth years to orbit the sun.

It has 53 numbers known Moons and has seven numbers of glorious rings. These rings have several gaps and divisions between them.


Uranus, the seventh planet, is an ice giant planet. It has 27 numbers known Moons and has rings like Saturn.

It takes 27 hours to rotate around its axes and 84 Earth years to orbit the Sun. The color of it is blue because of Methane gas.


The last planet from the Sun is Neptune. It is a ringed planet and has 14 numbers known Moons.

It takes 16 hours to rotate around its axes and 165 Earth years to orbit the Sun.


Asteroids are like rocks that revolve around the Sun. These rocks are so small that they can’t be called a Planet. These are also known as Planetoids or minor planets.

The mass of all Asteroids together is less than that of Earth’s Moon.

The largest Asteroid is Ceres.


Comets are cosmic snowballs of frozen gases, rocks that orbit the Sun.
