A fun bit of trivia: when observed from outside the Earth's atmosphere (or indeed, any planet's atmosphere), the sun is actually white.

One thing to consider: If the sun were actually yellow, what color would snow be?

It only looks yellow because the only time we can look at it without going blind is morning or evening, when the light is being filtered through thick atmosphere.
