149 million 6 hundred thousand kilometers away, the Sun appears as the brightest star in our sky.  It powers photosynthesis of our plants and heavily influences our weather and climate.   Radiation from the sun reaches Earth in the form of ultraviolet radiation (UV) and though the sun makes for great fun outdoors, its rays can be damaging to the skin with continuous exposure.  The Sun has long be the center of folklore and mythology.
