diameter: 1,390,000 km.
mass: 1.989e30 kg
temperature: 5800 K (surface)
15,600,000 K (core)

The Sun is by far the largest object in the solar system. It contains more than 99.8% of the total mass of the Solar System (Jupiter contains most of the rest).
It is often said that the Sun is an "ordinary" star. That's true in the sense that there are many others similar to it. But there are many more smaller stars than larger ones; the Sun is in the top 10% by mass. The median size of stars in our galaxy is probably less than half the mass of the Sun.
The Sun is personified in many mythologies: the Greeks called it Helios and the Romans called it Sol.
The Sun is, at present, about 70% hydrogen and 28% helium by mass everything else ("metals") amounts to less than 2%. This changes slowly over time as the Sun converts hydrogen to helium in its core.

Sorry this is not about the Sun....
Alot of owners only look after them for awhile,until their aged..that's when they pets begin not so adorable like before,so they willl be thrown to SPCA, seeing so many abandoned pets and not enogh space for anymore..pets that are not redeemed after awhile will be put to sleep...Crying or Very sad So why so heartless,people!
i should change the topic to 'The Sun and abandoned cute pets' yea?

Here got some more facts. Read on.





Average distance from Earth

93 million miles

Time for light from the sun to reach the Earth

About 8 minutes to reach the Earth

Diameter of the sun

About 865,000 miles. (The diameter of earth at the equator is approximately 8000 miles, so the diameter of the sun is 108 times greater than the diameter of Earth.) If the sun were hollow, it could hold 1,300,000 Earths.

Age of the sun

4.6 billion years

Expected lifetime of the sun

Another 5 billion years

Mass of the sun

About 2 trillion, trillion, trillion tons; if it were possible to clump all the planets together, the sun's mass would be 750 times larger than all the planets together.

Surface temperature of sun

About 11,000 degrees fahrenheit

Core temperature of sun

About 27 million degrees fahrenheit (which is enough to sustain nuclear reactions)

Composition of sun

At least 94% Hydrogen; remainder is mostly helium; with traces of other elements.

Rotation period

At the equator: 25 Earth Days
Halfway to the poles: about 28 days
Near the poles: about 35 days
(The sun does not rotate as a solid body!)

sun's gravity

28 times greater than Earth's

sun's activity

The sun goes through an 11-year cycle of activity, in the form of sunspots, solar flares, solar mass ejections, etc.V xxx
