It is pretty amazing how much larger the Sun is compared to the Earth. But to be that far away and produce the nice light and heat it provides the earth, one would have to assume it is pretty massive. I would like to have a little more of it where I live to melt off this snow. Need to get some things done and 4 months of winter has been plenty. I either have to move north to Canada too its banana belt region lol! or head much further south.:thumbsup: South of the equator that is!

Here's a cool picture of the Sun and the Earth in comparison to one another:
