MissMontes Antonio Erick Nicolas Pedro TheSun(checktheformat:timesnewroman12etc) The sun is the largest object in our solar system, it has

enough mass to hold planets and objects in the orbit. The sun holds the solar system together and gives light and heat. Sunlight is produced by the atomic fusion that happens in three parts of the sun:Thecore,theradiativezone, and the convective zone. The sun isreallylargeitcanhold109planetsacrosshissurface.Thesun is filled with scorching hot gasses. Sometimes the suns corona splits highly chargedparticlesthat zoomsthroughthesolarsystem.
