The Sun as You Have Never Seen it Before

This week’s Boston Globe’s Big Pictures features the Sun

.

This animation shows the Sun over the course of six days starting June 25, 2007.  You can clearly see the rotation and some flares and prominences.  Animations like this really drive home the point that the Sun is a dynamic body and not just the constatnt light we see with out eyes.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Big Picture: The Sun.
