The Sun Gets Around

By initially observing the movement of sunspots, scientist concluded that the Sun does rotate, but because the Sun is made up of gaseous elements and is not solid, the rotation is uneven. The rotations at the equator is about once in a little over 25 days, but at the poles about 36 days and varying in between. The Sun is also tilted on its axis of rotation (relative to the Earth and our point of view). But never look directly at the Sun without special protection for your eyes.
