1. The Earth revolves around the Sun.

I consider the above statement should be written without any article as we're using earth and sun as a proper noun. Which of these is correct to write?

  1. Earth revolves around Sun.


  1. Earth revolves around the Sun.

This discussion provides very good information about how to use articles in your context.

Since both "Earth" and "Sun" are to be treated as specific / specified celestial bodies, the definite article is needed. Therefore, the most correct is:

  1. The Earth revolves around the Sun.
