Where the sun go at night?

The Sun doesn't go anywhere; it sits there in the middle of the solar system. What is happening is that the Earth is an enormous ball that is turning. The Sun's light is shining on the Earth all the time, and whichever side of Earth is facing the Sun is experiencing "day". As the Earth keeps turning the side that was in the sunlight turns away from the Sun and the Sun appears to go down. But the Earth keeps turning, and soon the Sun "rises" and it is daytime again.
