The most important celestial body for us, after the earth on which we live, is the sun. Imagine that the sun did not exist: it would be always dark on earth, there was no day and night. It would always be terribly cold, there were no seasons. People, animals and plants could not live on the earth if the sun were not there. Today we paint the sun, because it is so very beautiful and actually the sun is a miracle!
