Is there a reason that the word "sun" is capitalized? In English, it is not necessary. Is it necessary in Vietnamese?

No, but many people including both English and Vietnamese speakers consider it's more strict to capitalise it, as it's a proper name.

Technically our 'Sun' should be capitalised as opposed to other random suns out in other solar systems. Similarly our 'Earth' should be capitalised.
