For some reason the last photo reminded me of a human egg.
Absolutely beautiful and amazing photos. Thank you for sharing.

Divine Strake asked for a size comparison with earth and I think it would be great to superimpose the earth at the correct scale and lined up side by side across the disk, if the photograper wouldn't mind.. That would put into perspective just how massive our sun really is. I get 7.6 pixels across for the earth compared to this picture for the sun.edit on 30-10-2010 by jb1958 because: changed diameter to across for the earth

This is how I see it..
The solar system = an atom, the sun being the nucleus, the planets as the electrons. The atoms then make up the molecules (solar systems make up constellations, star clusters), which coalesce to create a galaxy, which is sort of like the cell. The cells then make up the neurons (galaxies form the superstructures) of the.. etheric god brain I call it.
So in my mind, the universe is just an even larger brain of some super complex being that was conceived at the point scientists call the big bang.
But to think of it as a brain in itself implies that there is also some sort of dimension that it lives in also..... O.o
Either that, or I'm completely insane .
