Our Solar System is large, beautiful and empty.
The Sun contains 99.8% of the mass of the entire Solar System. The Sun’s gravity is what holds the Solar System together. The Parking Lot Solar System starts at The Sun and goes to the most well known Kuiper Belt Object – Pluto.
However, our Solar System is larger than the orbit of Pluto, it extends to Apache Junction on this scale (Tomahawk Road – ish). Out there, at the edges, is the theorized Oort Cloud, icy objects that were formed 4.6 billion years ago.
Take a walk from The Sun to Pluto, feel all that space, know where we fit – one of a billion trillion Solar Systems in a Universe of Galaxies.
How special we are, to be able to witness this amazing wonder, this amazing place – our Parking Lot Solar System. (cheese for effect)
