Our Star

"The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do."
-Galileo Galilei

I took these at the lake last month and it's inspired me to learn more about this beautiful star.

Very cool (and free!) app for the iPhone or iTouch:  3D Sun.

The sun is the solar system, and nine other cool facts about the sun.

Why do we study the sun?  Check out NASA's Sun For Kids.

Amazing images of the sun from LIFE magzine

The Big Picture has more breathtaking images.

Suntrek is a pretty awesome resource for learning more about our star.

I'm interested in getting a couple of books for the kids about the sun.  Anyone have any recommendations?
