    How massive would an object have to be for the sun to revolve around it?

    Good question. Technically, the Sun is revolving around everything. However, the amount it revolves about smaller bodies is so tiny, it's imperceptible. In order to be observed, there would have to be a body similar in mass, or heavier, nearby.
