The Sun and the solar system

Like the moon, the Sun is a luminous body that can be studied in great detail thanks to how near it is to the Earth. 1.4 million km in diameter, the Sun is 110 times bigger than the Earth! What’s more, its mass of 2 quintillion kg (2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg) is 330,000 times heavier than that of the Earth. Composed of approximately 75% hydrogen, 25% helium, and several other heavy elements, the Sun is roughly 149 million km from Earth. Find out here which planet rules over your zodiac sign!
