    Yes. The Sun on Pluto is about as bright as just after sunset on Earth.

    Yes it is.    The US's moon would be too faint to see from Pluto without a telescope, but you could still see the sun with a naked eye.

    Nope. The sun is a brighter star in the sky, but much dimmer than a full moon on earth

    Yes, that is true. The magnitude of the Sun at Pluto is -19.xxxxxis. That is more than 400 times brighter than the magnitude of the full Moon according to Sky & Telescope magazine.
