Every morning, while you’re snoozing in bed, the sun rises high into the eastern sky. And every night, when you’re getting into your pyjamas, it drops with a splash into the sea in the west. Over time, people have told many tales of how the sun moves across the sky. As the Ancient Greek story goes, Helios, the Greek God of the Sun, was responsible for moving the sun from East to West. He drove the sun across the sky in a golden chariot with the help of his four mighty horses.

The chariot glittered with jewels which sent light in all directions. Phaeton looked upon it with delight and longed impatiently for the joy of driving it. “Oh, my dear son,” said Helios, “do go not too high or you will scorch the heavens, or too low, for you’ll set Earth on fire. Phaethon was so happy to hear what his father was saying. He leapt into the golden chariot and the fiery horses chased out of the palace’s eastern gates.
