So guys I've been thinking.
What happens when the outside lava on the sun solidifies like it has on earth?
Isn't it going to be dark all day and we will only have a bit of moonlight at night?
Don't worry that's not going to happen. What is going to happen is that one day billions of years from now our sun will die and collapse forming a giant blackhole which will swallow the earth and all of man's creations along with it. :-)
You are wrong btw, like the other anon said it isn't big enough, but it will expand and engulf mercury, venus, earth, maybe mars, and leave jupiter and the rest of the gang floating off into space when Jupiter alone will have enough orbital influence (gravity) to keep the other planets around it
I'm sure you think Earth is flat too. You shouldn't have skipped class my dear dude.
The Sun is more like a nuclear power plant than a volcano. It's nuclear reactions of Hydrogen and Helium under pressure and head that turns them into plasma and radiates photos and a whole other bunch of stuff.
Moonlight is the Sun's reflection.
Day and Night only depends on which side of Earth is exposed to the sun.
And now, I'm not sure if you're bait or a very uneducated person. If the latter, at least you're trying to understand, so good job person.
If bait, well, would you look at how much I care about my time lost on this post ?
The sun is always shining, hidden behind Earth, making it day on the other side. But since its photons radiate in every direction, it gets the moon and they bounce back to earth.
There are other Ionized elements present as well which allow for spectacular views of Solar weather.
Especially Iron Ions in different angstrom wavelengths.
