"Solar Fury" by Andrew McCarthy
printed on C-Type Matt
An incredibly detailed portrait of our star, captured on a day that had a sunspot group pointed right at Earth. Scientists were concerned they could create a flare that could wreck havoc on our satellites, but thankfully nothing happened aside from this pretty show.
This is the solar chromosphere, an atmospheric layer on the sun. Captured using a specially modified telescope, this is a unique view of our star that shows off the complex magnetic fields as they guide plasma structures hundreds of thousands of miles long.
