What is the color of the sun, really? What factors does its perceived color
In a black hole is energy created or destroyed?
The spectrum of the sun is many colors. The dominant color is determined
by the average temperature and for the sun is in the yellow - orange.
The color we see is about right. Our eyes have adapted to see in the
light of our star. The dominant color is proportional to the temperature.
Black holes are basically large masses that have collapsed onto themselves.
They suck things in and convert some gravitational energy to other forms.
