I think there might be other possibilities than those just two:
The earth could be keeping an orbit around the sun, but closer, farther or elliptical. It also could be simply destroyed, either "directly" by a

our dying sun I believe. Tell me if I'm wrong, but I think that our sun in its final stages will grow before its death, up to a point where our orbit
(and even further) will be enclosed in its outer layers!
