A Planet is a celestial body in space that normally orbits a star.


The definition of what is constituted a planet varies, but normally planets are considered to:

  1. orbit a star,
  2. not orbit another celestial body that isn't a star nor a binary star,
  3. not have any other objects (other than a moon) share its orbital region unless smaller objects were pulled in by its orbit.

There are two types of planets in the galaxy: gas giants and terrestrial (or rocky) planets. The former normally being the largest type of planetary classification.

Planets also host a multitude of atmospheric conditions and sizes.
