Caption: Copernican solar system, 1690 artwork. This heliocentric (Sun-centred) solar system was proposed by the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus in 1543. Planets shown here are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The outer ring is the fixed stars. The other planets and the asteroids are not shown because they were not known at the time. The labels are in Latin.
