“THE SUN IS YELLOW”
Think the Sun is yellow? Think again… sort of. The Sun emits all wavelengths of visible light, from violet to red. This means that it would appear white if you could view it with the naked eye in space. However, each colour corresponds to a different temperature, with yellow-green light of 550 nanometres emanating from about 5,700 degrees Celsius.
From Earth the Sun appears yellow because the longer-wavelength yellow light is less easily scattered by our atmosphere than shorter wavelength colours like blue and violet.
The Sun might seem yellow to us, but appearances can be deceiving
