The Sun is not a planet, it is a star.
It is the only star we can see during daytime. The Sun´s name comes from the Romans who called it “Sol”.
The Sun is the closest star to Earth.
The Sun is made out of burning gas and gives us light and energy.
The Sun keeps us warm. All living things need the Sun to live.
It is when the Moon passes directly between the Earth and the Sun.
This can cause complete darkness during daytime for short time.
