"A missionary of the Middle Ages tells that he had found the point where the sky and the Earth touch..." —Flammarion Engraving (Colorized)

The Cosmos is the name given to everything that is above the terrestrial atmoplane.

General

The Sun

Main article: Sun

The Sun is a sphere which revolves above the Earth on a path known as the ecliptic. Its path moves North-South over the year between the Tropic of Capricorn to the Tropic of Cancer. It illuminates a portion of the earth at a time and has daily cycle of one revolution per 24 hours.

The Moon

Main article: Moon

The Moon is a sphere which revolves above the surface of the Earth in a manner similar to the Sun. It moves at a slightly slower rate of revolution, at about 347.81° per 24 hours, rising and setting 50 minutes later each day. The Moon has a monthly phase cycle, ranging from New Moon to Full Moon.

The Planets

Main article: Planets

The planets are spheres which move above the face of the Earth and across the sky with apparent relationship to the Sun. Known to antequity as 'wandering stars', the planets were once thought to be key to the nature of the Solar System and the Earth's place in it.

The Stars

Main article: Stars

The stars are luminous elements which move in a layer above the Sun and Moon at a rate of about one rotation every 23.93 hours. The underlying cause for the rotation is a vast cornucopia of stellar systems orbiting around its center of attraction - an imaginary point of shared attraction.
