These 14 Images Of The Sun May Be The Most Spectacular Ever Snapped

Photograph by NASA/Goddard/SDO An instrument on NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured its 100 millionth image of the sun. The instrument is the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly, or AI.

On August 31, 2012 the Sun threw a major tantrum. It started with a vast arc of material towering over its surface, a stream of plasma flowing between two sunspots. Sometimes these collapse back down to the Suns surface, but this one exploded, blasting hundreds of millions of tons of material out into space. SDO captured this ridiculously awesome picture of the arc just before it erupted!

The sun is 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit and 93,000,000 miles away from Earth. It is also 1,000,000 times the size of Earth. 960,000 Earths would fit inside it. If Earth was a golf ball, the sun would be 15 feet in diameter. It would take the Gross National Product (GNP) of the U.S. for 7 million years for a power company to run the sun for 1 second. God is a powerful Creator.

An incredibly stunning solar flare erupted from the sun's surface throwing charged particles and searing plasma millions of miles out into space. The blast was was not directed at the earth and it is unlikely to hit any of the planets in our solar system.

Apricity, n. (obsolete) - the warmth of the sun in winter. From Latin 'apricus', warmed by the sun. Sadly not related to 'apricot'.
