According to the Incas,today marks the Birthday of the Sun. So in celebration of the Sun here are some fact about that ball of fire in the sky.

The sun contains 99.85% of the mass in the solar system.

Four million tons of hydrogen are consumed by the sun every second, which helps to create the sun’s composition of 75 percent hydrogen, 23 percent helium, and 2 percent heavier elements.

Approximately 109 planet Earths would fit on the surface of the sun and more than one million planet Earths would fit inside of the sun.

All planets orbit the sun in the same direction, counterclockwise, and on roughly the same plane, known as the ecliptic.

Happy Birthday Mr. Sun.
