The Sun is one of the most important things for living things.
The gravity of the Sun is so strong that the sun can hold the planets in place.
The Sun is actually a small star and in fact it is smaller than normal stars.
Anyway we see the Sun bigger than stars because it is closer to our planet Earth.
Sometimes we cannot see the Sun or we can see only part of the Sun.
This rare phenomenon is called solar eclipse.
The below image shows how a solar eclipse happens …
The ring is called corona.
DANGER NOTE: NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN EVEN THOUGH YOU USE A TELESCOPE OR A BINOCULARS. THE STRONG LIGHT WILL HURT YOUR EYES EVEN YOU DON’T FEEL IT!
In San Diego, 20,000 fireworks were launched from four barges in San Diego Bay and from a pier for the Independence Day fireworks show.
But the whole fireworks accidentally went off five minutes before the show was supposed to begin.
And the Fourth of July fireworks show that was supposed to last for 17 minutes, lasted in only 15 seconds in very loud booms.
Here are wonderful photos of the celebrations from the NBC San Diego.
I think that fireworks are very beautiful but they can be very dangerous and bad for us too.
It caused air pollution, wasting our money and can cause fire.
Here are some videos of the incident:
