image for Part Of Sun Breaks Off, Heads Toward Earth
A New NASA Photo Of The Sun

Houston, TX-- Concerned NASA scientists held a brief news conference this afternoon regarding our sun. The scientists warned everyone that part of the sun has broken away from its head, and is heading straight for the Earth. They said one of the sun's sixteen rays has broken away from its face, and could hit the Earth sometime tomorrow.

NASA has made many new exciting discoveries about the sun this year. It turns out the sun is really just a big, yellow ball with a smiling face on it. The sun wears sixteen rays, or spikes around its big round head, as it circles the earth everyday. The sun is really only about a mile up in the sky. All other discoveries about the sun for the last 500 years are now considered complete nonsense.

Dr. Karl Saygun is the chief astronomer for NASA and explained the situation in more detail:

"The sun looks just like it does on that box of Raisin Bran you eat for breakfast. Any five-year old can tell you that." said the wacky astronomer. "One of those little spiky things broke off somehow, we just want to warn people. Maybe the little spiky thing will grow back." he said.

The strange astronomer suggested there is something that everyone in the world do.

"Just look up at the sun and smile back at him tomorrow. You can wave too." said Dr. Saygun. "The sun has a hard job to do everyday, but he always has time to smile at us, so don't be shy. And watch out for that falling little spiky thing too. A tin hat would help." he added.
