Question 197: Sun Protection

Either you can move away OR put something between you any the fire. Well, imagine the sun as this bonfire, just a bonfire with a diameter 109 times bigger than the earth. Unfortunately you cannot move away from the sun. With that being the case, do you protect yourself from the sun?
