This is the Sun

In this image, light at different wavelengths, all caught with NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, has been assigned different colours. The whole thing has then been mashed up to show our star’s corona in as much detail as possible.

Not the whole Sun. Not in real colours. This image makes stuff visible which we normally can’t see.

It ain’t more awesome than that.
