Using GiMP. How do I select something out of an image to create a standalone .png file of that something?

I am running GIMP and I have very little Photoshop skills.
I would look this up on Google but I'm not even sure how to phrase this problem. So any help is appreciated. Please excuse my mangled graphics-related vocabulary.
Let's say I have a simple graphics file: a blue sky with a yellow sun in the center.
I want to select the sun (made of 2 colors) and save it so it will be a standalone .png file. (Just the sun, without any kind of background, to be used on a variety of other backgrounds later.) What is the best way to do this? Is there a tutorial that shows how?
Thanks in advance!
