The Sun

Sun Ray tells us about the Sun.

The Sun is one of a billion stars. It has a volume of one million times that of the earth and is 1,392,000 km. in diameter. It is 150,000,000 km. away from the Earth. The earth rolls on its axis as the sun stays in one place relative to the earth. The sun looks like it is rising and setting.
