Sun vs Earth (How Are They Different?)

The main differences between the Sun and Earth would be that the Sun is a yellow dwarf main-sequence star that is 1.39 million km in diameter that is located at the center of our solar system, with the ability to produce energy via nuclear fusion whilst Earth is the 3rd farthest terrestrial planet from the Sun … Read more

Sun vs The Moon (How Are They Different?)

The main differences between the Sun and Moon is that the Sun is the central entity in our solar system that all objects in its local region orbit, has a diameter of 1.39 million km and is the brightest entity in our solar system that produces energy for life to exist via nuclear fusion whilst … Read more

Sun vs Mercury (How Are They Different?)

The main differences between the Sun and Mercury is that the Sun is a yellow dwarf star, that is the brightest entity in our solar system, has the most mass, is the largest entity in our solar system and it is the entity within our local region that provides energy to the planets around us … Read more

Sun vs Venus (How Do They Differ?)

The main differences between the two is that the Sun is a yellow dwarf star whilst Venus is simply a terrestrial planet that orbits the Sun. As a result it is much smaller with a diameter of 12,104km compared to the Sun’s 1.39 million km, it cannot produce light and energy via nuclear fusion like … Read more

Sun vs Uranus (How Are They Different?)

The main differences between the Sun and Uranus is that the former is a yellow main sequence star at the center of the solar system that Uranus orbits around and produces energy for the entities around it whilst Uranus is an ice giant that is the 7th farthest planet from the Sun that has spins … Read more

Sun vs Saturn (How Do They Differ?)

The main differences between the Sun and Saturn is that the Sun is the hot and bright main sequence star at the center of our galaxy whilst Saturn is a yellow gas giant that is the 6th farthest planet from the Sun, around 12 times smaller and is much colder, with an average temperature at … Read more

Sun vs Pluto (How Are They Different?)

The main differences between the Sun and Pluto is that the former is yellow dwarf star and the other a dwarf planet, Pluto is tidally locked to its moon whilst the Sun is not tidally locked to anything, Pluto orbits the Sun whilst the Sun orbits nothing and lastly the Sun is a scorching hot … Read more

Sun vs Neptune (How Are They Different?)

Neptune is the 8th farthest planet from the Sun, is blue in color and very cold whereas the Sun is the star at the center of the solar system that Neptune orbits, produces the energy we receive and has a gravitational force so strong that multiple celestial objects orbit it. Both entities may be made … Read more

Jupiter vs Sun (How Are They Different?)

The main differences between the Sun and Jupiter is that the former goes through nuclear fusion, which allows it to create light, is roughly 10 times the width of Jupiter, is hotter and far heavier than Jupiter, weighing roughly 1000 times more than the gas giant. Both celestial objects are similar in how they are … Read more
