The Sun is a huge glowing sphere of hot gas.




It shines down on the Earth, on all of us, the animals and plants and the land.


We need the Sun to help everything grow and be healthy, but we also need to protect ourselves from the Sun, as it can be dangerous if we are exposed to it for a long time.
