Heliocentrism is an astronomical model that explains that the earth and planets move around the sun, which remains in a static position, and is located in the center of the universe. The word comes from "helios" which means sun and "kentron" which means center. It is the opposite version of Geocentrism, which believed that the earth was the center of the universe. The theory told us that anyone who stopped to observe the sky would perceive that the earth was in a static position, in a single place, while everything that appeared in the east was hidden in the west. So, we can say that heliocentrism is the true astronomical model, which explains that the sun is the center of the universe and our galaxy, and that in it we also find the Milky Way, around which the planets and the earth revolve.
