Incandescent Sun

“Processed SDO images in the 171 Angstrom wavelength of extreme ultraviolet showing plasma in the solar atmosphere, called the corona.”

This amazing photo has been released by NASA not for any scientific purpose, but mainly cos it’s pretty, and it is a pretty stupendous image after all!
