How many moons does the sun have?

Our sun has no moons. It has planets that revolve around it and the moons then revolve around the planets. Currently, most scientists consider eight objects that orbit the sun to be planets but some also include Pluto and other dwarf planets that have been recently discovered. Currently, we know of 166 moons that orbit around the eight large planets in our solar system.
The sun doesn't have any moons. A moon is a natural satellite that orbits around a planet. Since the sun is classified as a star and not as a planet, it has no moons. There are 9 planets that orbit around the sun--Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. A few years ago, astronomers decided that Pluto is too small to be considered a planet, even though it does have moons. Now it is called a dwarf planet. Since 2005, two more dwarf planets, Eris and Ceres, have been discovered in our solar system.

The sun has no moons it has its planets. I think the planets that are orbiting the sun, you think is the moons of the sun. It is not.
The sun does not have its own moons. A moon is a natural satellite that orbits a planet. The sun is a star and has many satellites including planets, planetoids, asteroids, and comets. Of the planets in the solar system Earth has one moon; Mars has two, Jupiter 62, Saturn 33, Uranus 27 and Neptune 13. Pluto is generally no longer thought of as a planet, but if you are calling it a planet it has one moon. Mercury and Venus do not have moons.
Zero, due to the fact that it's a star.
The sun has no moon. The moon is defined as a satellite that revolves around a planet, and the sun is not a planet.
A moon is defined as a natural satellite that revolves around a planet. So by the very definition itself, the Sun cannot have moons. However, it does have 8 planets that revolve around it in a similar fashion to how moons revolve around planets. The planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune (in that order). Of these planets, Venus and Mercury do not have moons.
The Sun has no moons. Only planets have moons. The sun is not a planet, but a star. On the side note, there are many moons in our solar system. The moons revolve around planets, and the planets revolve around the sun!
The sun doesn't have any moons at all, it is not a planet
The sun has no moon since the sun itself is a star . If the sun did have a moon it would be like a moon having a moon. The only planets that have moon are Earth (1), Mars (2), Jupiter (50), Saturn (53), Uranus (27) , and Neptune (13).
The sun has no moons.
The sun doesn't have any moons because it isn't a planet, its a star. Moons are natural satellites that orbit around a planet. For example, earth (we) have 1 moon, mars has 2 moons, Saturn has 60 moons, etc. The sun doesn't have any moons because it is a star.
The sun has no moons. Sun is a star!
0, because the sun is a star, not a planet.
The Sun actually has no moons at all. It is a giant star with scorching hot temperatures. Even if the Sun doesn't have moons, it has planets that orbit it, and on those planets are moons, asteroids, comets, and other space items. The Sun, along with Mercury and Venus have no moons.
There are no moons as the Sun is not a planet.

The sun doesn't have moons. Instead it has planets, natural satellites; things like comets, asteroids and meterors. If you had meant to say satellites, then the sun has millions.
The sun has no moons, neither do Venus or Mercury, It is simply too hot for them to form, They would instantly evaporate, There are currently 166 moons that have been found in the solar system. With currently Earth having 1, Mars having 2, Jupiter having 62, Saturn having 33, Uranus having 27 and Neptune having 13.
If the sun did have any moon(s), the moon(s) would be evaporated! So NO! lol
I think the sun has no moons becaue a moon is a natural statellite that revolves around aplanet an since te sun is a star and not a planet, the sun has no moons
The Sun actually has no moons. If it had a moon it would burn it to death because the Sun is a big ball of hot gas.
