Fascinating Facts About the Sun

The Sun is a star that gives humans living on Earth light and heat so that they can survive. Without the sun, there would be no life and everything would be cold and dark.

The sun is very hot. It is a giant, red, hot ball of fire. Energy made from the sun heats its gases, which bubble to the star’s surface.

Sometimes you can see some black spots on the sun, which are a result of an area that is cooler than the rest of the sun. These spots can be as wide as our planet Earth!

The sun is not only hot, but also very bright. There is a warning to never look directly at the sun, especially through a telescope or binoculars. It is so bright that it could harm your eyes or even make you blind.

The sun is so hot that getting close to it would kill you.
