The sun is the core of the solar system which consists of the sun, eight planets, earth,
meteors, asteroids, and many other bodies (Na et al., 2016). These bodies twirl around the sun at
variable distances. The earth is the third planet from the heart of the solar system (sun). The
distance from the earth to the sun which is known as the astronomical unit is roughly

distance between the sun and the moon changes throughout the. When the sun is far away from
the earth, it is called aphelion, while when the sun is nearest to the sun, it is called perihelion (Na
et al., 2016).
