I reading the bible last night came across this wording in Psalms and then in the extensive notes on Psalms in the KJV, and thus spent time reading
The words heaven
are used 718 times in Scripture.
They mean the air, clouds, sky, expanse, stars, and the planet on which God dwells.
The Planet Heaven (2 Cor. 12); Created before Earth (Gen 1:1; 2:1; Job 38; 4-7)
Heaven is a created planet like Earth
(Gen 1:1; 2:1; Ps. 8:3)
Highest Planet (Eph. 1:21; 4-1; Heb. 7:26)
A paradise (2 Cor. 12:1-4; Rev. 2:7)
God's dwelling place (Dt. 26:15; 1 Ki. 8:30, 39, 43, 49)
...in the north part of the universe, in relationship to the Earth (Isa. 14:12-14; Ps. 75:6-7)
...above (1 Ki. 8:23)
...and in the highest part of creation (Job 22:12; Lk. 2:14; Eph. 1:21; 4:10)
...round (Job 22:14; Ps. 19:6)
...like the Earth (Isa. 40:22; Eccl. 1:6)
...unknown, but perhaps larger than Earth, judging from the size of its cities (Rev. 21:9-27), from the size of other planets compared to Earth and
from the number of inhabitants (Jer. 33:22; Heb. 12:22-23)
...has real cities (Heb. 11:10-15; 13:14; Rev. 21:2, 9-27)
...all material things like we have on Earth (Rom. 1:20; Phil. 2-10)
...Men have been taken to heaven and have lived there in natural bodies for thousands of years (Gen. 5:24; 2 Ki. 2:1, 11; Zech. 14:11-14; Heb. 11:5;

It would make a lot of sense too with the fall of man as per Genesis.
They fell from a planet.
Also, does this prove life exists on a Planet other than Earth?
Yes I believe it does.
Here we all are searching for answers and yet, here in the Bible, it states another Planet with life on it exists
