Sun disappears

Expert Answer:

HI dear,

if the Sun disappeared, for eight and half minutes, we'd have no idea that the sun is gone. As soon as the sun's last light falls on us, 8 1/2 minutes later, after the sun itself disappeared, It would night through out our earth.  The earth would sail off straight into space.  Earth would be travelling at the same speed as about 18 miles per sec. into eternal night. Hope this helped.

Regards,
