We live on a small, rocky planet. That planet circles a small, yellow sun. That sun is found near the outer edge of the Milky Way Galaxy. Galaxies are collections of stars—lots of stars. There are hundreds of billions of stars in our galaxy alone. And there are hundreds of billions of other galaxies. In this book, we’ll stay closer to home. We’ll use infographics—charts, graphs, and diagrams—to take a closer look at our own Sun and the planets, moons, and other objects that circle it. This is our solar system.
