    OK. I'm going to burn up every last brain cell trying to get some sort of grasp on this.

    There is a fire on the sun. A fire that is larger than earth itself. Several times larger than earth itself.

    What is the sun then, if not heat energy? Is it some other sort of "fire" that has eruptions or flare ups?

    What I thought I once knew, I now know I don't know.

    Tink the sun is a huge reactor that moves and bubbles and boils and occasionally chucks a whole spurt of material out into space that is kind of what the flares are - we are undergoing a 'minimum' - longest one ever as it happens where this sort of activity is rare but give it a few months and years and there should be a lot more to see
