The sun is the star at the center of the solar system. It is by far the most important source of energy for life on Earth. The sun is a medium-sized star and about halfway through its life. It has been shining for about 4.6 billion years and will shine for another 5 billion years or so before it dies.

The sun is huge! If you were to put it next to Earth, it would be more than 100 times wider than our planet! Even though it’s so big, the sun only weighs about 333,000 times as much as Earth does. That means that if you took all of the planets in our solar system and put them together, they would still weigh less than the sun!

The surface of the sun looks pretty calm but there’s actually a lot going on. The temperature at its core is around 27 million degrees Fahrenheit (15 million degrees Celsius)! That’s hot enough to turn hydrogen into helium—the process that gives our star its energy.

The sun is one of the most important objects in our solar system. It is huge and so bright it’s hard to look at it with your eyes. The sun gives us day and night, summer and winter. It also provides warmth and energy for all living things on Earth. Plants need the sun to grow, animals need the sun to stay alive, and people need the sun for Vitamin D.

The Sun is a star that is located in the Milky Way galaxy. It contains about 98% of all the mass in our solar system! The Sun is huge compared to Earth – about 109 times wider! If you could put a giant container around the Sun, it would hold 1 million Earth inside of it! Our planet orbits or goes around this big star we call home once every 365 days or 1 year here on Earth.

It’s not just size that makes stars different; brightness also varies from star to star (and even within some stars over time). The brightness we see from stars depends on how hot they are as well as their size & distance from us:

The hottest stars are blue while cooler ones appear redder.- Size doesn’t seem like it would affect how bright something appears but large objects can actually emit less light per square area than smaller ones because their heat gets spread out over more surface area. Even if two objects have equal temperatures, one farther away will look dimmer than one up close because its light has to travel a longer distance before reaching us.
