the sun
The Sun is a giant star. Special cameras need to be used to take pictures of the sun (such as the picture shown). The sun is mostly hydrogen with about 10% helium and other elements.The SUN
the sun1
We think of the Earth as a huge place. The diameter of the Sun is about 100 times wider than the Earth as can be seen in the diagram at left. Our Sun is an average size star but it has 98% of all the mass of the solar system. Some stars are as small as the Earth while others can be 500 times

bigger than

our Sun.

The SUN
the sun2
The earth, lit by the sun, casts a long, conical shadow in space. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes completely into the shadow.

Just before the moon completely covers the sun, mountains on the moon allow a bit of light to peek through creating this beautiful diamond ring effect at

the left.
