He was the first to point out that our Earth revolves around the Sun on its axis and that the Moon is the Earth’s satellite which revolves around the Earth. Aryabhatta believed that the orbit of all the planets is long circular. He told that the light of the moon is the reflection of the sun.

The Earth is round and rotates on its axis, which causes night and day, everyone knows this theory, but many people will be familiar with the reality that Aryabhatta had discovered long before ‘Nicholas Copernicus’. The Earth is round and its circumference is approximately 24835 miles.

Aryabhatta falsified the belief of Hinduism that the planet named Rahu swallows the sun and the moon, which eclipses the sun and the moon. In the lunar eclipse, he discovered the reason that the lunar eclipse occurs due to the arrival of the Earth between the Moon and the Sun and its shadow falling on the Moon.

He also knew that the moon and other planets are not themselves luminous, but that the rays of the sun reflect in them, and that the earth and other planets revolve around the sun. He also said that the ‘moon’ is black and illuminates only with sunlight.
