#### Answer:

No.

#### Explanation:

Although the universe looks this way, it is false.

We know this as the planets move in a fashion which is not circular to us, which we have known for thousands of years.

We also know this as we have observed this from outer space for the last 50 years, with us being able to use the ACCURATE current solar system model to be able to calculate orbital periods and using the oberth effect to slingshot spacecraft into interstellar space. e.g. Voyager 1 and 2.
