The most compelling statement provided here is that different star constellations are visible on Earth at different seasons of the year, or answer D. For many hundreds of years, everyone has known that the earth revolves around the sun. However, the majority of people didn’t always believe this. This is a story for another question, though.

The reason the fact that we can see different constellations in the sky during different seasons on earth is the most compelling reason we travel around the sun is because if the sun travelled around the earth, certain constellations would only be visible in certain places. You’d have to travel to see certain ones.

However, you don’t have to do that because we travel around the sun, therefore travelling around other stars too.

The earth is a planet in our solar system and it revolves around the sun along with seven other planets. There are many theories surrounding the movement of the earth around the sun. However, the phenomenon of different star constellations being visible at different seasons of the year helps to confirm the fact that the earth revolves around the sun.

Our solar system is part of a vast galaxy of stars and planets called the Milky Way. The Milky Way is just another part of the entire universe where there are billions of stars and planets several thousand times the size of earth.
