The Sun is an 8x8 pixel sprite, and is the brightest light source in Minecraft. It has a light value of 15, the same as lava, beacons, End Portal Frames, Redstone Lamps, fire, and a few others. The Sun starts on the positive X side of a world when created, and moves towards negative X until sunset. A regular day/night cycle in Minecraft is about 20 minutes, the Sun being out for about 10 minutes. The Sun also has various affects on Mobs. It causes Skeletons and Zombies to burn, causes Cave Spiders to become docile, and Endermen to begin teleporting to The End.
