The Sun

Our reading today talks about the sun. There are telescopes focused on the sun all the time, and they capture some pretty incredible images. Here is an amazing example of a solar flare. Check out how big the Earth is compared to the solar flare and the sun itself.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, just because it's related, here's one of my favorite songs of all time! It was originally written and recorded in the 1950's. Listen for the line that tells how big the sun is compared to the Earth. Ta-daaaaa......!!!
