The Sun is cool again…

I’ll be writing a lot more about these new images of the Sun – taken by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory – later, when I get back from work, but in the meantime just have a drool over this…

Dear god, look at that… that’s our star, seen in breathtaking detail… SDO is going to revolutionise our understanding of the Sun, and throught that our understanding of our place in the solar system and the wider universe, I’m sure. It’s also going to lead to a surge in sales of those beautiful gold-coloured Coronado solar viewing telescopes. I’m going to hit the overtime this summer and save up for one myself, I’ve just about decided.. 🙂

More on these fantastic images later…
