The earth is not very big when compared to the star of the day- the sun, because a million earths could be put into one sun. Yet the sun is just like a dwarf when compared to some other stars. It is also not the brightest star, yet to the earth, it is just right. It only looks brighter and bigger because it is the nearest one to the earth with a distance of approximately 93,000,000 miles. It is in the center of the solar system and so the other planets move in circles around it. The sun is composed of hot gases.
They include; hydrogen, helium, calcium, sodium, magnesium and iron. When four atoms of hydrogen come together to make one atom of helium, the sun’s a lot of energy is released. That is where the sun gets its heat from. The sun has so much heat, but because the earth is located very far from it, only enough amounts reach it. Enough to provide comfortable climatic conditions that make vegetable and animal life on earth possible. This big star whirling millions of miles away does affect us personally. The food people eat, the air they breathe is provided by the sun.
The oxygen in the air we breathe is made possible by the sun through photosynthesis. The sun also provides the other necessary factor to life which is warmth. It is hot enough to keep the entire world warm though sometimes one would require sunshade when it is too hot. Without water no life would continue on earth. The sun also takes care of that by drawing water from the soil, lakes and rivers inform of vapor then clouds are formed which eventually fall back as rain. Though in some areas, it rains more than others, the consistency of this cycle keeps life on the move.
Without the sun, the earth would not be filled with beautiful colors, as color is made from light. Any person who feels lonely, weak or cold feels better when they sit outside on a good warm sunny day with an wall umbrellas. It sure does lift spirits up. It also serves as a timekeeper for the earth along with other stars and the moon. For instance, the twenty-four hour system is determined by the rotation of the earth on its axis, and the years are determined by the amount of time the earth takes to go round the sun.
The height of the sun and the amount of time it takes on the sky also are responsible for the seasonal changes and climatic conditions in the earth. Without the sun, the earth would be dark, cold and there would be no humans on earth to see the beautiful sunsets. The sun also supplies humans power needs to a large extend. People on earth should fully take advantage of this star in improving their lives. In cases where it may be too extreme and cause damages especially on buildings, one should install awnings to protect them.
