Two photometric (khg) indices have been measured for 42 F, G, and K luminosity class V stars and Uranus. The indices correlate well with the (B-V) and (U-B) values of the stars. The (khg) indices of Uranus are used to derive (B-V) and (U-B) values for the sun. The results are (B-V)⊙ = 0ṃ631 ± 0ṃ003 (p.e.) and (U-B)⊙ = 0ṃ14 ± 0ṃ007 (p.e.).
