WHAT'S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS STAR KNOWN AS THE SUN?

THE SUN IS SO FACSINATING BUT TO HOT TO EXPLORE!!!

Radiotive & Convective Zone

Raditive Zone: A radiation zone, radiative zone or radiative region is a layer of a star's interior where energy is primarily transported toward the exterior by means of radiative diffusion and thermal conduction.

Convective Zone: A convection zone, convective zone or convective region of a star is a layer which is unstable to convection.

PhotoSphere & Chromosphere

The Photosphere is The photosphere is a star's outer shell from which light is radiated.

The Chromosphere: The chromosphere is the second of the three main layers in the Sun's atmosphere and is roughly 2,000 kilometers deep.
