1. Blow up the Sun

If you have the Dawnguard expansion, then completing the 'Touching the Sky' quest awards the ancient artifact Auriel's Bow. By equipping Elven Arrows with special enchantments this weapon can be fired at the sun to cause dramatic effects.

Using Sunhallowed Elven Arrows (obtained from Knight-Paladin Gelebor) makes the sun explode, raining down beams of light that cause damage to nearby enemies. Bloodcursed Elven Arrows, on the other hand, cause to sun to implode into blackness and plunge the world into a long and dark night.
