One of the most remarkable features of our solar system is that nearly all of the revolutions and rotations are in the same direction. From a point high above the north pole of the solar system the planets are revolving about the sun and rotating about their axes in a counterclockwise direction. This holds true also for the asteroids. If the planets and asteroids were formed from merely random accretions the would be an even mixture of the directions of revolution and rotation. The sun itself also rotates in a counterclockwise direction. The satellites of the planets also generally revolve and rotate in a counterclockwise direction. Of the thirty something satellites only six do not do so; they are said to have retrograde motion. Of the six exceptions five are outer satellites likely to be captured asteroids.
The planets do circle the Sun because they can move around it when the time changes
From Rebecca xx
All planets circle the Sun
Planets circle in an elliptical orbit around the Sun.
none the sun doesnt circle the planet planets circle the sun!!!
Planets circle the sun Moons cirle planets.
Circle around the sun some say the sun circles the planets but it does not
in a circle
There are 8 planets that rotate our sun as Pluto has been declassified as a planet.
its because of the pull of gravity from the sun>
The sun's gravitational pull
The gravitational pull.
The planets revolve around the sun. The planets rotate on their own axis.
The sun and all of the bodies that circle around it including planets and moons make up the solar system.
Copernicus was the first astronomer to come up with the idea of heliocentric cosmology (planets orbit the sun).
It is called the solar system
the sun earth and the remaining planets are roughly spherical in shape.
From: Angelo.k Francisco They circle the sun like planets but at one point they get closer to the sun.
A circle but Pluto (which is not considered a planet currently) makes an oval shape.
Yes, though the orbits are not perfectly circular.
Each of the planets moves around the Sun in an ellipse. Usually - in the case of the planets - this ellipse is quite close to a circle.
