What Is The Difference Between a Sun and a Planet?

Reuters certainly don’t know.

Sun 3-D pictures help warn of solar flares

The first three-dimensional images of the Sun from a pair of spacecraft orbiting the planet were released on Monday and can begin helping scientists predict when and how hard dangerous solar storms will hit, the U.S. space agency NASA said.

Just think, this blunder has gone right around the world. Here is the same article in NZ

This the definition for planet: “Any celestial body (other than comets or satellites) that revolves around a star”

And the definition for sun: “A typical star that is the source of light and heat for the planets in the solar system”

Anyone who studied science at school would know that there is a big difference between the two. Obviously the people who work for Reuters didn’t do science at school.
