Summary: A direction $$d$$ is called a tangent direction to the unit sphere $$S$$ if the conditions that $$s \in S$$ and $$\operatorname{lin}(s + d)$$ is a supporting line to $$S$$ at the point $$s$$ imply that $$\operatorname{lin}(s + d)$$ is a semitangent line to $$S$$, i.e., is the limit of secants at $$s$$. A set $$M$$ is called convex in a direction $$d$$ if $$x,y \in M$$ and $$(y - x)\parallel d$$ imply that $$[x,y] \subset M$$. In an arbitrary normed linear space, an arbitrary sun (in particular, a boundedly compact Chebyshev set) is proved to be convex in any tangent direction of the unit sphere.
