Summary Edit

As with similar stars, the very young Sun was therefore surrounded by gas and dust leftover from its formation. Through a series of collisions between the gas molecules and dust particles, this material became organized in the form of a circumstellar disk. The circumstellar disk is where the planets formed. (animation from L. Close, http://athene.as.arizona.edu/~lclose/teaching/a202/lect4.html)
