The sun is the star at the center of the solar system. It is the most important source of energy for life on earth. It is informally referred to as yellow dwarf. It is said to have formed approximately about 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of matter within a region of a large molecular cloud. The sun comprises about 99.86% of the mass of the solar system.
The sun is by far the brightest object in the sky; it is about 13 billion times brighter than the next brightest star, Sirius. At an average distance, light travels from the sun’s horizon to earth horizon in about 8 minutes and 19 seconds and the distance between the sun and earth is approximately 150 000 000km.
The tiny thing that we see in the sky is not in reality tiny but rather mighty because of it uncompromisable size and might. The mass of the sun is approximately 330,000 times greater than that of the earth. If this earth is squished inside the sun with no wasted space then around 1,300,000 would fit inside the sun. the suns surface area is 11,900 times that of the earth
