Sun Takes a Vacation

by Selena Spain

Sun was bored. He’d been in the same spot for over 5 billion years. He needed a break . . . a change of scene, maybe even new friends. He needed a vacation.

So Sun put on his travel clothes and left. He travelled fast and far. He saw many different solar systems. All the suns were different, the planets strange.

The first sun he came upon was big and busy and none too friendly. She only had three planets under her pull, but they were so busy revolving around her that they didn’t even stop to say “Hello.” Sun sped on his way and travelled further into space.

Soon he discovered another solar system with hundreds of weird and wonderful planets. Some were friendly and welcomed Sun as they passed on their orbits, but most just went about their business.

“Wow! The big city,” said Sun.

Here Sun visited parks and museums; galleries and shops. He went to the beach. He even went to the zoo.
