Why are celestial bodies spherical in shape?Celestial bodies are spherical in shape because of gravity. Whenever enough mass gathers close together, the resultant gravity, which follows the inverse square law, pulls equally in all directions and results in a spherical shape. Irrespective of the material composition of the celestial body, a diameter of a few hundred kilometres is sufficient to create a spherical form.
