The Sun Is a Star
You are no doubt familiar with the evening sky, and the wonders it presents as twilight deepens to darkness. A typical night may find the Moon displaying its ghostly earthshine along with the major planets glowing brightly during their wander through the zodiac. Occasionally, meteors flash and hazy comets or star-like asteroids slip quietly about the solar system. Providing a backdrop for these menageries you also find an infinite quantity of seemingly fixed points of light, the stars.
