Our Solar System was formed about 4.6 billion years ago. It consists of many astronomical objects like sun, planets, dwarf planets etc. These objects interact with each other and every object has a fundamental interaction with the Sun as they are bound in its orbit. They move around the Sun in an elliptical path. There are total 8 planets, 5 dwarf planets, 181 moons, 566,000 asteroids and 3,100 comets in the solar system. It takes approximately 240 million years to complete one orbit of the galaxy. The Sun contains 99.86% mass of the entire system.
