Brighter Than You Think

Explanation: An artist's impression of Pluto's surface. The Sun appears about 1,000 times fainter than it does on Earth. Instead of a big yellow disc, the sun would look more like other stars, with one big difference: it would still be much, much brighter than anything else in the sky.
