usually considered as heavenly bodies.</p>
<p>Stars are giant balls of hot gases that can produce their own light. Stars give out energy by converting
Hydrogen gas into Helium in their cores. Stars are gigantic in size and have immense gravitational attraction.
The sun is a medium-sized star that gives us energy and makes life possible on earth.</p>
<p>Planets are large (almost) spherical objects that revolve around the sun. Planets move in fixed orbits
around the sun. There are 8 planets in our solar system. Planets may be made of rocks, metals and gases
like hydrogen, nitrogen and methane. The earth is also a planet and is the only known place in the universe
which supports life. Planets that revolve around other stars are called exoplanets.</p>
<p>Satellites are objects that revolve around planets. They form the essential part of the celestial bodies.
These may be of natural origin or sent by humans. The moon is a natural satellite of the earth and revolves
around it because it is bound by the Earth’s gravitational pull. Man has also placed artificial or man-made
