This site features a lot of Little Sunshine Party Supplies that you can order with just a click.
Little Sunshine Party Supplies – The Background
We get sunshine from the Sun. Sunshine consists of visible, infrared and ultraviolet light. Sunshine is a part of the electromagnetic radiation that is given off by the Sun. The sunshine reaches us after being filtered through the Earth’s atmosphere. We receive the sunshine only when the Sun is above the horizon. Sunshine is a combination of radiant heat and bright light. We all love a little sunshine when the weather is cold. And this little sunshine is the basis of Little Sunshine Party Supplies.
Sunshine takes about 8.3 minutes to reach the Earth. Sunshine on the skin is an effective source of vitamin D. When the sunshine is blocked by the clouds, we still get diffused light. Sunshine recorders, pyranometers or pyrheliometers can be used to record the sunshine. Before reaching the Earth’s atmosphere, the sunshine is composed of about 50% infrared light, 40% visible light, and 10% ultraviolet light.
Sunshine is a key factor in the process of photosynthesis in plants. In this process, the plants and other autotrophic organisms convert the sunshine energy into chemical energy that they use to fuel the organisms’ activities.
Sunshine has many other benefits. Daylighting is a process in which natural sunshine is used to get effective internal lighting during the day. This is done by placing windows or other openings and reflective surfaces towards the sunshine. This process reduces the use of electric (artificial) lighting. It also provides passive solar heating.
Sunshine also provides us solar energy. The solar energy is harnessed from radiant light and heat from the sun using solar heating, solar photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity, solar architecture, artificial photosynthesis and other ever-evolving technologies. Solar energy is used in architecture, urban planning, agriculture, horticulture, transport, reconnaissance, daylighting, water heating, room heating, cooling and ventilation, water treatment, cooking, process heat, electricity production and fuel production etc.
From Earth, both the Sun and the Moon look about same size. The Earth revolves around the Sun and the Moon revolves around the Earth as well as the Sun. When the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth and it blocks the Sun fully or partially, it is known as a solar eclipse. In partial solar eclipse, only part of the Sun is obscured from the view and in total eclipse, the entire disk of the Sun is obscured by the Moon. A solar eclipse can occur only at new moon, because it is the time when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction when seen from Earth. During the total solar eclipse, the sunshine does not reach the Earth, it becomes dark. Except the total phase of a total solar eclipse, the eclipse should not be watched with the unaided eye and without protection as it may cause permanent eye damage or blindness. Special eye protection or indirect viewing techniques are available to view a partial eclipse or the partial phases of a total eclipse.
Here are some fun facts about the Sun, the source of the sunlight:
The Sun rotates on its axis once every 27 days.
The Sun is the closest star to Earth.
The Sun’s surface is known as the photosphere.
The age of the Sun is 4.6 Billion Years.
The Sun is Yellow Dwarf (G2V) type star.
The diameter of the Sun is 1,392,684 km.
The circumference of the Sun at equator is 4,370,005.6 km.
The Sun is 109 times wider than our Earth.
The mass of the Sun is 1,989,100,000,000,000,000,000 billion kg (333,060.402 times the Earth).
The surface temperature of the Sun is 5500 °C.
The temperature at the core of the Sun is around 27 million° Fahrenheit.
The Sun takes 225–250 million years to orbit the centre of our galaxy (the Milky Way).
The 99.86% of the mass of the Solar System is made up by the Sun.
The Sun could fit the Earth in itself approximately 1 million times.
The Sun is made up of 92.1% Hydrogen and 7.8% Helium.
The Sun is 24,000 – 26,000 light-years away from the galactic centre.
The distance between the Sun and the Earth is known an Astronomical Unit (AU).
The satellites of the Sun are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Makemake, Haumea and Eris.
The Sun is only one of more than 100 billion stars in our galaxy.
The Sun is the largest object in the solar system.
It has more than 99.8% of the total mass of the Solar System. Most of the rest is contained by Jupiter.
In Greek mythology the Sun is called Helios and in the Roman mythology it is called Sol.
Unlike the Earth, the Sun is not a solid body.
The Sun’s power is around 386 billion billion megaWatts. It is produced by nuclear fusion reactions.
The Sun’s magnetic field is very strong. Its heliosphere aka magnetosphere extends well beyond Pluto.
The solar wind is a low density stream of charged particles emitted by the Sun. The solar wind propagates through the solar system at around 450 km/sec. These solar flares cause radio interference and power line surges on Earth.
Little Sunshine Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Little SunshineParty Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Little Sunshine Party Supplies that has much more items than the Little Sunshine Basic Pack. The Little Sunshine deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Little Sunshine Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Little Sunshine Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Little Sunshine Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Little Sunshine Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Little Sunshine lover kids.
