I can guarantee you that if it weren't for the Sun our nighttime would be much colder.
Nearby radiating ball of NUCLEAR flame. Ftfy.
Came here to say this. Nothing quite like a nuclear furnace a million miles wide to shine like a lantern in the night.
Darkness is the natural state of the universe. Nighttime requires an opposite, daytime, which means nighttime would also only exist in the presence of a radiating ball of (light source).
Not flame, plasma.
Which is a type of mega flame
Pride parades also are caused by nearby radiation of flaming balls
We would've adapted or been blind like mole rats...or something.
So nice voices would give us boners with no other way to gauge attractiveness.

Without the sun is highly unlikely that complex life will exist. It depends on the object, the earth seems to be an exception in the solar system, we have a very active core and plate tectonic. So if the earth would have been ejected at the formation of the solar system life would maybe still evolved deap near the ocean hot vents, but it would not gone further.
Maybe. Most, though no all, life on the planet goes back to the sun though.
My grandma recently made her journey back to the sun
There is a belief in religion, I forget which, that says we all come from a ball of light, spread out into the universe, and return to that light when our time is over.
I've always loved that analogy but even more now that I am imagining your grandma making a deliberate journey to our star
I think it's weird to think that there is a ‘natural state' to begin with - I guess you're a morning person.
steps outside in the morning
Ahh feel that radiation.
daytime only exists for the planets that make part of a solar system, so for the rest of the universe, it's always nighttime
A plant, by definition, is part of a solar system. Planets further from their sun do not experience day in the same way as those closer to the sun, but all planets have a sun.
Some planets called Rouge or starless planets don't have a sun. They either had one and was pulled away or when formed never got caught in the G-pull of a star. In the center of every Galaxy has its own pull so that planet follows that.
Except for Drifto, the starless planet
What does it circle?
Pluto would like to have some words with you
What does he need from me?
Hole-o the black hole in the center of the galaxy.
Technically ours is the only solar system in the universe, the rest are all just star systems.
It's called the Solar system because it is around the star Sol.
If the star were Alpha Centauri, it would be the Alpha Centauri system.
Don't be silly, it'd be the Alpha Centauriar System.
Stfu! It's too early to destroy what's left of my mental foundation just like that 😭😭😭❤️❤️❤️
Is your limited period of daytime already ruined? That's too bad
I often think about how in Dune, even the daytime sky on Arrakis is black because there's so little water vapor in the atmosphere.
This planet is so thinly veiled from the universe that if the earth were the size of an apple, the atmosphere would only be the thickness of the wax on the skin.
So the batman will never get his sleep
i dont get it
Daytime is an abnormality, which explains why I'm not fond of it.
Always been jealous of the life of a bat
Even night time is a lot brighter than the natural state of the universe.
Since beginningless time darkness thrives in the void but always yields to purifying light.
I don't think it's nighttime, per se, but it's just black and that color is associated with nighttime. Without the sun, there is no daytime or nighttime. The definition of night is, "The time from sunset to sunrise."
That's exactly what I Think
It would be weirder to think anything else
This one kinda got me. Never considered this before
