In English?

“Sun” is the big bright thing that shines all day.

“Moon” is the thing that one can sometimes see during the day but is best seen at night.

Not sure what you’re asking. In a different language, do you mean?

@janbb What are the scientific names for both?

janbb's avatar

Googling it, I see Sol and Luna but sun and moon are also used in scientific papers.

The Sun is usually just called the Sun, from what I know. I’ve never seen the Latin “Sol” used outside of poetic or science fiction contexts, but this may be because we have much less cause to refer to another “sun” than we do to refer to another “moon”. “Moon” has become a general term for any natural satellite, so sometimes the Latin term “Luna” is used to distinguish our Moon from the moons of other planets. There’s also the Greek terms “Helios” and “Selene”. I don’t hear those as often, but they are cool. :)
