What is it that you see? What do you think this is?
When I first saw this photo, I thought it was just another piece of amazing artwork. A really beautiful flower maybe.
If you said that this is a high resolution photo of a sunspot, and first ever model of a full sunspot you would be correct!!
What is a sunspot?
A sunspot is basically a blemish on the Sun, like the acne of stars. I wish my pimples were as beautiful as this, then maybe I wouldn't mind them so much.
It's amazing what is out there isn't it. So many beautiful things. When life doesn't seem very kind, it's nice to have reminders of the awe inspiring elegance of nature. It helps to remove us from our own negative thoughts, to bring us back to the world beyond us.
