Sun consist of five sections. In the center there is a core. In the core hydrogen is changed into hellium, when emitting lots of energy. There is a high temperature and density. Then there is situated a wide radiative zone. Here the life is produced via fotons. Convection zone which follows is much smaller. Here coller masses are transported closer to the Sun's core and warmer ones are elevated towards the surface. Photospere covers the conventional zone. It is what we can see on the sun. In the photosphere we can see sunspots and protuberances. Last layer is atmospere. It consist from anoter five layers. They are called temperature minimum, chromospehere, transition region, corona and heliosphere.
