The big beautiful sun is still golden yellow... Just not here...
I do not know whether the sun is changing in composition or function, but I can tell you the sunlight is still golden yellow like when we were kids. Just not here. I make many trips to China on business, where the sun is still yellow, sometimes orange. Remember orange sun? I do. Growing up in So.California.
The air pollution of our youth is gone (here in the US). So yes, the sun looks and feels hotter/ brighter/ whiter, but it always has been. The sun is still the same hot burning white orb when i visit the deserts, just as it was when I was I kid, or up in the mountains above the smog layer. Does anyonre remember SMOG days when we could not go outside and school was cancelled? Yellow Sun. Look at color photographs in old magazines; yellow sun. Easy answer.

I'm only 21, so I don't have any memories of the sun before the early 90's really. However I still enjoy sitting in the sun, and I can stare directly at the sun , at high noon, to no ill effect.
