Solar System Profile The Objects in Our Solar System There are many different types of objects found in the solar system: a star, planets, moons, dwarf planets, comets, asteroids, gas, and dust. Approximately 4.6 billion years ago a large cloud of gas and dust was disturbed by some force. (Scientists have theorized that this force was a nearby supernova.)
A solar system is a star and all of the objects that travel around it are planets, moons, asteroids, comets and metroids. The solar system extends much farther that the eight planet that orbit the sun. Scientist found out the edges from the solar system is about nine billion miles from the sun.
