[COLOR=ORANGE]Just a lil something POSITIVE to add to the ATS energy flow of things. SMILE
[/COLOR]


The smile on the sun is visible through 11 photographs taken by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which images the sun from Earth orbit. Each picture was taken at the same time, but through a different filter that separated out a narrow wavelength band of light. The images range from lowest temperature to highest.


This still from a NASA video shows an apparent smiley face on the sun as seen by the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The solar happy face is seen in different wavelengths in a video posted on July 25, 2011.

Our sun is apparently a happy star according to the latest video from a NASA observatory. The video shows a pattern of sunspots that, when viewed from afar, forms a vast happy face smiling across face of the sun.

Sunspots are darker, cooler patches on the sun caused when intense magnetic activity blocks heat convection. These spots are normal, but they don't usually align to give the sun's face such character.

These different temperatures correspond to different layers of the sun's atmosphere, starting with the sun's surface and gradually moving out to the sun's upper corona.


Magnetic activity on the sun generally follows an 11-year cycle of waxing and waning. At the moment solar activity is coming out of a lull and starting to heat up, moving toward an expected peak around 2013.

It looks like a smirk but I like it.

Maybe the sun is thinking "haha you are in for it soon" ???


Seriously I can see the smile in it

I figured with all the unsetteled nerves on ATS it would be cool to throw something less intense into the pile of drama. I hope any who get to see get a smile out of it, enjoy. Life isnt so bad just some of the players are.

Be well

Whats wrong sun feeling a bit peckish not enough comets to eat? Or are you just lonely and misunderstood? Did the aliens do something bad to you? Anyways thanks for sharing really cool picture.

Awesome, I wonder if these 11 pictures were taken just prior to the CME that was recorded, here is a thread on that: www.abovetopsecret.com...

The number 11 means "illumination" and is associated with "messages" and "fire", and is also considered "center stage" in thoughts and expressions!

Very appropriate! S&F

The sun can afford to make a smile and maybe laugh a lot when he saw what the leaders (lyers) of the United States did concerning the debt ceiling. Makes me laugh also how ridiculous the situation is right now around the world
