3D Model of the Sun
When the sun is shining in the sky, it looks like a big ball of light. It’s actually a lot more complicated than that. The sun has layers and it also has places where it looks bumpy or spotty.
The center of the Sun is thecore. It’s very dense but very hot, so it is a gas. Its temperature is 15 million kelvins (27 million degrees Fahrenheit)! In the core of the sun, nuclear reactions calledfusionmake energy in the form ofgamma raysandneutrinos. This area has a radius of about 90,000 miles.
