Gorgeous View Of The Sun’s Prominence Blast

Post image for Gorgeous View Of The Sun’s Prominence Blast

Beautiful pic of the Sun + prominence during the Solar Minimum taken by Alan Friedman. The Earth would easiliy fit underneath the prominence to the right. The hot gases blanketing the surface of the Sun sort of remind me of one of the shaggy grass covered planetoids from Super Mario Galaxy, which might make you think for one half of a split freaking second that it may be a nice place to visit but if you could somehow suddenly appear at the surface of the Sun you’d probably die faster than if someone shot you in the head with a gun, and don’t you forget it cause you’re mine Bender, for two months. I’ve gotcha. (Dunh Dunhhh Hey Hey Hey Hey)
