Thank you for that. Those are some amazing photos. Kind of bogles the mind doesn't it. Be nice to have that kind of camera focused down on Mars wouldn't it? Then we wouldn't have to guess......

Just like static sky said, wow. First thing that came into my mind. Thanks for sharing. As an ignoramous, can anyone give a real quick answer as to what exactly is going on in the pics?

There is a brief 2 to 3 sentence at the bottom of each pic that describes what is going on. At least I see them when I follow the link above.

thank you!!!

the surface looks plasmic! there is depth and texture. sometimes just when ATS is falling own the pit of misery, a post like this comes around and puts things in perspective. we all come from that ball of turmoil. oceans of rolling living plasma. i am inspired.

Nonquam Dormio....never sleeping....

our sun, never sleeping. always watching. the ALL SEERE.....

Great pics. Thank you so much for sharing. The sun must be the most awesome thing in the entire universe, yet most of the time, we take it for granted.

Thanks, I read them and think, ok, sure. But I really can't say I have a firm grasp of how it all functions together. Amazing, beautiful, incredible, whatever is going on sure is a pleasure on my eyes.

Very nice pictures of the sun. A solar sky of beauty in my opinion. It's amazing just how powerful the sun is and how we little specks of dust need it for life and warmth. Thank you for the pics OP.

Aggieman Great pics!

I don't know if you have seen the Imax 'Sun in Motion' footage but it's definitely worth a look:

Very cool!

Thanks for sharing

Now for the love of humanity, why can't they take the same picture of the moon super close up showing there is no structures on the moon?

We have much better views of Mars. The HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) can -- and does -- resolve objects about 1 meter in size. The sunspot in that picture is probably close to the size of the whole planet Mars.

To the OP...Great pictures!
