Glyph 19 2

The Sun seen in the Glyphs

The Sun is a star at the center of Earth's Solar System.[1]

In 75,000 BCE, a coronal mass ejection erupted from the Sun and struck the Earth, decimating a large portion of the human and Isu populations on the planet, and scorching the surface of the Earth.[2]

In 2012, a second, equally powerful coronal mass ejection erupted from the Sun, and once again hit the Earth. Fortunately for the planet's human population, measures taken by the previous eruption's survivors – namely Minerva, Juno, and Jupiter – to defend against such a re-occurrence, meant that the planet survived largely unscathed.[3]
