I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday

There are always different ways of looking at something.

Here's the sun, one of the very cool gallery of images at the Solar Dynamics Observatory, part of NASA's Living with a Star program. (I personally think that's the best name ever given to a government program. Ever.)

This photo was taken in extreme ultraviolet light, making the highly decorative magnetic loops on the sun's surface visible. You can also watch this as a movie on the SDO website, which is beautiful and more than a little spooky.
