The Sun is the star at the center of our solar system. The Earth and other matter (including other planets, asteroids, meteoroids, comets and dust) orbit the Sun, which by itself accounts for more than 99% of the solar system's mass. Energy from the Sun -- in the form of insolation from sunlight -- supports almost all life on Earth via photosynthesis, and drives the Earth's climate and weather.

In Guy Smiley's "Here is Your Life" sketch on Sesame Street season 3, the Sun pays tribute to Oak Tree, who grew thanks to the Sun's shine. Oak Tree thanks the Sun and his partner Cloud.

On Bear in the Big Blue House, the Sun is known as Ray.
