We can still see the planets and our moon in the night sky because light from the Sun reflects off of them. Colors of the planets.
This picture is not to scale. What is in space besides planets and stars?
What is an orbit? What causes an orbit to happen? What travels in an orbit? What is a satellite?
What is the orbital plane? What is escape velocity?

How do we know what's in space? What are the orbital lengths and distances of objects in our solar system? Many planets across the universe probably end up falling into their stars, either because they stray too close, or because the stars expand as they age. Alexander Stephan at the University of California, Los Angeles, and his colleagues calculated how planets could affect the stars that eat them. They found that a planet falling into a star can make the star brighten for anything from centuries to millennia.
And that the star can spin faster as the planet deposits its energy. Often, when a star eats a planet, the star can start to spin so quickly that it begins to rip apart, throwing its outer layers off into space where they form a strange, flattened nebula of dust and gas. This brightening and the weird nebulae are signatures that we can look for to find stars that are in the course of swallowing their planets, or those that have just done so.
It could also help us learn about other planetary systems across the universe. Something similar may also happen in our solar system in about five billion years when the sun expands to become a red giant, swallowing up Mercury, Venus, and maybe even Earth.
