A solar system refers to a star and all the objects that travel in orbit around it. Our solar system consists of the sun, eight planets (and their natural satellites), dwarf planets, asteroids, and comets. Our solar system is located within the Orion Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, which is located about 27,000 light-years away from the Milky Way Galactic Center.
This is a project powered by Three.js and WebGL. All objects within this project have been modeled to scale based on real astronomical data. The scene currently renders the sun, all eight planets (nine if you side with Pluto being a planet), each planet's moons, the asteriod belt and thousands of stars.
