A planet is a celestial body in hydrostatic equilibrium (i.e. compressed into a sphere shape because of gravity) that orbits a star within a solar system. Planets can be made of either gas or rocks, and are called gas giant planets or terrestrial planets respectively. Terrestrial planets can have multiple continents; any planet can also have multiple moons or any natural satellite.
