So here are a few sun facts to ponder.... The sun is 109 times wider than the earth and 330,000 times as massive. Meaning 1,300,000 earths would fit, squished inside the sun. Yikes! And what's worse - one day the sun will consume the earth. : ( However, given that light from the sun takes eight minutes and twenty seconds to reach us I'd say that's fair warning - although the fact it will already have gobbled up Mercury and Venus might give us a clue. Until then we'll just have to keep watching!
