The Solar System is located within one of the outer arms of the Milky Way, which contains about 200 billion stars.
The Solar System[a] is the Sun and the objects that orbit the Sun. These are a planetary system of eight planets[b] and various secondary bodies, dwarf planets and small Solar System objects that orbit the Sun directly,[c] as well as satellites (moons) that orbit many planets and smaller objects. The Solar System formed 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of a giant molecular cloud.
The above WIKIPEDIA definition of the Solar System does not include my fascination with it. I have always looked upwards and imagined what is going on there and what other past societies thought of the sky and its wonders. For me, it represents all that I imagine and feel at different points of my looking. To “record” these ideas, I have devised my own solar systems to bring to life my personal thoughts through images and text.
