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.


You did only it was the Shuttle and ISS in front of it



The Sun had the same texture that day as well

Taken by a French astronomer

Funny that the SOHO images of the Sun never look like that

Actually they don't come more typical or is that an oxymoron? You know what I mean.

Apart from being the only close star, it's completely unremarkable.

go find a sun then look at our pretty sun

diddly !

oh forgot to add "crazy how the sun looks with NO sunspots"

and in 300 years its never EVER EVER had zero spots. interesting ?

well im sure we will find out when the sun wakes up "i hope" in 2011

Considering the ranges of sizes and compositions of stars, if you form a bell curve with that info, you'll see that Sol is rather typical. Sure it's tiny compared to "some" stars but that really doesn't mean anything.

Oh and no sun spots? We can only see a single hemisphere of Sol in that pic so it's hard to say whats going on.

well we can in fact see all around the sun


we have sats orbiting the sun ! just coz we live on earth dont think we only see one side


our sun is only a "typical" sun yes i agree but our sun is small
VERY SMALL compared with other suns

my point was how massive other suns are and how nuts a sun the size of our solar system is !

SUN as big as our solar system.. sorry i had to say that twice so you understand the magnitude of SIZE

we think our sun is big .. www.universetoday.com check it out your . will explode

get your . around that little gem

there were over 200 days last year that the sun didnot have any spots.and back during the 1913 solar minimum there was over 300 spotless days. it is not that uncommon to have no sunspots on the sun especially during solar minimums.

Wow, I think what impresses me most is that he did that with a "5-inch refracting telescope". Wow, I had a 4.5Inch, and never thought that kind of picture could be possible with a small telescope. Nice!!

Still think its real buddy? I'd say the science points to HOAX.

I was thinking about how large Hubble is. Of course compared to the sun, it's a speck, but even up close to us at the distance our sun is away from us, it still looks tiny.

But then you think about how big Sol is compared to other stars out there.
The largest start that we know of is VY Canis Majoris



Imagine a shot of the Hubble travelling in front of that cosmic puppy.
