How is our astronomy that we know today related to the ancient greek one (with gods and rulers)?

How did their mythology influence our astronomy today? Why were gods in the sky invented, to have people follow a rulers lead, is any of that documented (scholarly, not just an opinion)?
But how did they know which planets are bigger than earth and where is that documented? I need to cite things.

    We retain some ‘constellation’ names from Greeks mythology.
    That’s about it.

    Greeks weren’t actually very far off. They believed Gods lived int he sky, were bigger etc. i.e. Jupiter a massive planet compared to that of our own. Jupiter a.k.a. Zeus THe king of the gods and the strongest and the most influential entity in the greek mythology. examples like this one is found through out the greek mythology, when compared to the known universe.
