The Sun is by far the largest object in the solar system. It contains more than % of the total mass of the Solar System (Jupiter contains most of the rest). Mass : e30 kg.

NASA is set to release new details this week about the agency's unprecedented mission to "touch the sun.". Es ist diese Nacht, diese Party, die alles verändert im Leben von Fey und Lucas. The Sun does not have enough mass to explode as a supernova. At about , miles 1. Those that do appear are at high solar latitudes. Humanity's most fundamental understanding of the Sun is as the luminous disk in the sky , whose presence above the horizon creates day and whose absence causes night. The Sun does not have a definite boundary, but its density decreases exponentially with increasing height above the photosphere. Flares usually stem from the activity of sunspots, cool regions of the photosphere related to a shifting magnetic field inside the sun. Faint young Sun paradox. As the solar cycle progresses towards its maximum , sunspots tend form closer to the solar equator, a phenomenon known as Spörer's law. This is the time it would take the Sun to return to a stable state, if the rate of energy generation in its core were suddenly changed. It also causes sunburn , and has other biological effects such as the production of vitamin D and sun tanning. An year sunspot cycle is half of a year Babcock —Leighton dynamo cycle, which corresponds to an oscillatory exchange of energy between toroidal and poloidal solar magnetic fields.
