'''The Sun''' is the main sequence star of the Solar System. The sun has reached the end of its natural lifespan by the time your Hearthian's time loop starts, and within the 22 minute time loop, the sun approaches supernova, in the 22nd minute of the game, the sun explodes, and the loop restarts.
'''The Sun''' appears to be a main sequence star in the start of the game, but progresses through a star's standard lifespan during the 20-minute course of the game. It is 4km in diameter. The Sun appears to be at the end of its life, and is unstable, with accelerated fusion detected in the core. Presumably, this is due to alien interference, as the [[Observatory]] states that the Sun is naturally expected to go [[supernova]] in less than 2 million years. However, it is not sure what aliens, or why they seem to have accelerated the Sun's natural nuclear fusion processes. This may be revealed later.
 
 
During the course of the game, the sun turns redder and redder. Twenty minutes after the game starts, the Sun turns into a rapidly-expanding [[supernova]]. In the last minute of the game, music plays, to signify the approaching catastrophe.

In the Observatory, it says that the Sun is expected to go supernova in 2 million years, but it goes supernova much quicker in the game. The sequence of the sun's lifespan in the Observatory is somewhat consistent with what is seen in-game over the 20 minutes, but the sun does not swell in size as much.

The Sun is the main sequence star of the Solar System. The sun has reached the end of its natural lifespan by the time your Hearthian's time loop starts, and within the 22 minute time loop, the sun approaches supernova, in the 22nd minute of the game, the sun explodes, and the loop restarts.

The Sun is in Red Giant stage according to the Sun Station, and in the final minutes of the loop, music plays to indicate the impending of the current cycle.

Locations

The Sun Station orbits the sun quickly and is ill-advised to land on it. Although the Xbox One version of the game does have an achievement called "Hotshot" that requires you to manually land on the Sun Station. This can be done either with careful precision and patience, or repeatedly launching yourself full speed at the sun and hoping.
