In the Bible, the sun is never deified because, as an impersonal force, it was created by God as a great light to light up the Earth and set a calendar. The existence of sun worship in the Kingdom of Judah is reported by the Prophet Ezekiel. “They were bowing down to the east, to the sun.” (Ezekiel 8:16). This apostate behaviour went against the Law (Deuteronomy 4:19) and the words of the psalmist, “For Jehovah God is a sun and a shield; Favor and glory are what he gives.” (Psalm 84:11). Years earlier, the King Josiah had however abolished worship of the sun-god. - 2 Kings 23:5. The Temptation of Christ MI 285 Location in the Louvre: Ary Scheffer

The sun, source of life and fertility, is nevertheless revered in most cultures. A149
The incarnation of light in the form of the Egyptian god Ra, it would be Helios then Apollo among the Greeks.
The worship of the Persian sun-god Mithra is at the origin of the feast of Christmas.
The influence of this pagan worship of the sun also explains the presence of a ring of light, the halo, around the heads of icons of Christendom.

Our star will expand into a red giant in about 4.5billion years.
At this point will extend to 0.8AU or more.
500,000 years later it will shed the outer layers of gas(think of it like an onion) and the end result will be two things.
1: a planetary nebula
2: a White Dwarf
A white dwarf is the core of the star and since it was the core, it is still very very very hot.
It can easily be about 40,000K which is about 4000 x the boiling point of water.
Since these objects are no longer generating heat they’re cooling down.
But since space has no air they only way they cool down is via radiating the heat out.
The time it will take for a white dwarf to cool to 2K is over 10,000,000,000,000 years, yup.
They will take longer to cool than the universe has been around for.
In the future when their is not enough Hydrogen to form any new stars the only thing that will be left is these white dwarfs.
Once these reach 0K the universe will be dead, black.

A BIG HOLE IN THE SUN'S ATMOSPHERE: A large, canyon-shaped hole has opened in the sun's atmosphere, and it is spewing a stream of solar wind toward Earth. Polar geomagnetic storms are likely when the fast-moving stream arrives, probably on Feb 1st. This large "coronal hole" is spewing a stream of solar wind toward Earth.
