This is pretty cool, read the article in Discover Magzine.

"OK, so you look at it and say, "So what? It’s a picture of the quiet Sun seen in overcast conditions. Big deal!"

Awesome photo! Thanks man.

THere's nothing else I can say really. Nothing else would add weight to the image or do it justice!

That really is an awesome picture! The photographer's sure to make a killing off of that one.

Wow that is just insanely cool! The sun is beautiful! It makes the shuttle look like an ant

Amazing shot! The shuttle looks gigantic relative to the Sun in this shot, probably because it's so close to us in relation.
Even so--so tiny. Great find!

It looks like the shuttle is very close to the sun in that picture. If that's a real photograph I bet it's toasty inside.

These images don't seem real to me. Are there any other sources to back these up? I'm only seeing links to a french astronomy site and a flicker site....

I hate to use the word but that really is an awesome photo thanks for posting.

I can finally rest in the knowledge that the Hubble really exists.

I coulda sworn that I saw that pic posted on here a while ago.....as in, not having to do with Atlantis or the Hubble.

In fact, im almost certain about that.

Tiny, weeny, weeny, weeny speck in a huge, massive, endless void.

Safe trip home chaps!

Yes, it is Atlantis or alien spacecraft.

Here is another article that shows more pictures and gives further details of the astronomer and his work.

Vive La France!


To achieve his images he only used his £8,000 Takahashi refractor telescope, a £2,000 21MP Canon camera and a Baader solar prism, which acts to reflect away most of the sun's light.


Daily Mail.com

Can anyone lend me 10 grand?

RE The Mission:

The pair had trouble removing the old camera from the telescope because a bolt was stuck. They fetched extra tools, but none seemed to work.
The Hubble Space Telescope has been in orbit 350miles above Earth since 1990 Finally, Mission Control urged the astronauts to use as much force as possible, even though there was a risk the bolt might break. If that had happened, the old camera would be stuck inside, leaving no room for its souped-up replacement.
'OK, here we go,' Feustel said. 'I think I've got it. It turned. It definitely turned.' And then: 'Woo-hoo, it's moving out!'


lol!

beautiful pic i love this solar system
we should call it a better name though instead of "Solar System"
imagine when aliens come "greetings our cosmic brothers welcome to the solar system!"


p.s lmao at the spot that is the shuttle and hubble

Really nice pic although it's nice to see that there are still no sunspots on that big ball in the sky.

Great picture and links to follow through as well.

In a photo of a globe there are areas of light and shade relative to the light source. In this picture there is also a change in shade that shows the sun as a globe rather than a circle, daft (but serious) question for someone astronomically minded out there how can that be when the sun is THE light source?
