The Suns Diameter is 1.4 million kms (870,000 miles)

The Density of the sun is 1.41 (water = 1)

The distance to nearest star is 4.2 light years away. It takes the light of the Sun 4 years to reach Proxima Centauri (a red dwarf). That will change but it will be a long time before that happens because it’s in a binary star system with Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B.

The Sun creates Solar Winds with a speed 3 million k.p.h. (1.8 million m.p.h.).

The luminosity of the sun is 390 billion, billion megawatts.

A solar cycle takes 8-11 years

Temperature on the sun surface is 5,500° C (9,932° F) whereas at Core it is 14,000,000° C (22,500,000° F)

The temperature of Sunspots is approximately 4,000° C (7,232° F). Some sunspots are larger the entire Earth.

The rotation period at the sun equator is 25 Earth days and at the poles is 35 Earth days


The Sun has an atmosphere called the Corona.

Earth is the only planet in this solar system to have a full solar eclipse because the Sun is 400 times the dynamiter of the moon and the moon is 400 time the distance from the Sun.

Mercury spins so slowly that sunrise to sunrise is 176 Earth days.

The Sun has seasons.

Large rivers (e.g. Amazon in Brazil, Congo in the Congo, Yangtze in China, Brahmaputra in Bangladesh) are controlled by the Suns seasons.

The Sun is approximately 149 million kms (93 million miles) from the earth.

Only 55% of all Americans know that the Sun is a star.

If you were standing on Mercury, the Sun would appear 2½ times larger than it appears from Earth.

The sun shrinks 1.5m (5ft) every hour.

It takes approximately 12 Earth years for Jupiter to orbit the sun.

By weight, the sun is 70% hydrogen, 28% helium, 1.5% carbon, nitrogen and oxygen and 0.5% all other elements.
