    So lets take a look at what was written about the Sun back then. In this link and this NASA picture, it is stated the sun is " yellow ". Back in the year of an alumni of Cal State Northridge asked, " Why is the Sun yellow at high noon but red at sunset "?   While certainly not as dramatic as bursting into flames, for some people, sudden exposure to sunlight produces an unexpected reflex - they s are this happens to you, or one of your friends. It's called the 'photic sneeze reflex' and is more common than you'd expect, occurring in 17 to 35 percent of the world's population, according to informal surveys.

    Why is the sun hot? Our sun is the main reason that we have life on our planet. The earth is in our solar system in just the ‘right’ position so that we aren’t too close to the sun to get burned to a crisp and not too far away to become a planetary snowball. “Why The Sky is Far Away” is an exceptional Nigerian folktale retold by Mary-Joan Gerson and illustrated by Carla Golembe. Awarded “Best Illustrated Childrens’s Book” by The New York Times Book Review, the story tells a story of consumption and waste, and why these two things are so detrimental/5(49).

      So, why is it so bright? Is it because, like Mars or Jupiter when they are at their brightest, Venus is at its closest point to Earth? Well, not quite. At its closest, Venus comes within 42 million kilometres of our planet during what we call ‘inferior conjunction’, when it lies directly between us and the Sun. So you can see that a tiny amount of matter can be changed into an enormous amount of energy. This can only happen in places which have extremely high pressures and temperatures. At the center of the Sun, the temperature reaches 16 million degrees K, and the pressure is more than a billion times the atmospheric pressure on Earth!
