Astronomy, in general, is the study of celestial bodies and the universe as a whole. It includes the study of stars, planets, galaxies and other objects that are beyond the atmosphere of earth. The Bible does reference several objects, such as planets and constellations, found in what we today call space.

We can now take a brief introductory tour of the universe as astronomers understand it today to get acquainted with the types of objects and distances you will encounter throughout the text. We begin at home with Earth, a nearly spherical planet ab kilometers in diameter (Figure ). We think so. Our sun is a pretty typical star, and we are guessing that many stars have planets. So far we have found only a handful of planets around other stars. Planets are small and dim compared to their stars, and that makes them hard to find. Is there another planet like ours? The planet (which we know of) that is most similar to Earth is.

The planets in our solar system, starting from the Sun, are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Pluto was also considered a planet from until when the International Astronomer's Union (IAU) was prompted by the discovery Eris, a body larger than Pluto, to come up with a formal definition of the word "planet.". A Book About Planets And Stars is such an interesting book that talks about our solar system and the many different factors that make it up. This book has many different amazing pictures that really capture your attention and make you really excited about the material your learning about.4/5.
