Well there is actually, planets form in nebulae with their parent stars (most often binary) and are then ‘ejected’ as seed systems including planetary debris that forms a ring around the star. They are called ‘tadpoles.’ Some are lost to space of course. Some clump together while others are more gaseous than rocky. There are many details to be filled but Genesis was very specific about the process for earth, a rocky planet.

You can put about 1400 earths in Jupiter and a million or more in the Sun. Just use their apx  radii in miles or km and do a volume of a sphere calculation for each then divide.

This has been suggested for many many years because of the effects on the outer planets orbits. I am retired from teaching but it is in my Powerpoint notes.

I’d love to see more meteors but our skies are almost always hazy or cloudy here in the mountains those times in the year.

Looks like a river system near high mountains.
