Creation of Heaven and Earth

Genesis 1

In the Beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

What does the Bible refer to the heavens. Does it mean another dimension that we can not see and or does it mean the moon the stars, the planets that are seen and not yet seen through the human eye.

Genesis 1:2

And the earth was formless and void
and darkness was over the surface of the deep;
and the Spirit of God was  moving over
the surface of the waters.

In the Genesis 1:2 one can learn so much in just the phrase earth was formless and void.

Since the Bible begins with the first Part called Genesis , it's very starting point begins with the  description of Earth. It does not continue to mention anything about heaven.

To which Heaven, the skies up above or the heaven not seen through the realm of our virtual reality or what the human eye can see infront of us.

It is important the take our critical thinking to another level. The level on the surface is taking the literal meaning. The words should be taken for its bare definition.

The next part of the critical thinking is taking into consideration the noncontributing factors.

What Bible version was it? What year was it written?

Can we take various Bible languages and interpretation and what can be analyzed?
Does the meaning change.
Does the year and historical events occurring in the year of the Bible taken into context.
