What do we know about our Sun that enlightens us , and because of whom there is day time? When I was little, did not give importance to this massive ball of fire that warms our planet at the optimum temperature for life to evolve here. The Sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening. Although it would sound that the Sun would make this move , he actually does not move to produce the phenomenon of day and night, but the Earth spins on its axis once 24 hours , so we lose the Sun in view, until appears again at the east every morning , to enjoy the warmth and light of it.

What we see with our naked eye is not much , if we look at the Sun from here . On it are huge firestorms , which consists of hydrogen and helium . It's a huge star , a power so great that keeps close to it all the planets , asteroids and comets , everything that revolves around it. We exist here largely thanks to the Sun , being the most important existential factor for evolution of life on Earth.
I dare say that the Sun is like God . Without the Moon , other stars, we could exist , it's true in a slightly different way  than now , but the Sun is the central figure of everything around it. Nothing moves wrong , without its consent .
In the intangible world , religious , God is worshiped , but in the real world , tangible , Sun is definitely the main engine of life of our Solar System . It seems blasphemous that statement , but that is the reality.
