Ready for my close up

Say howdy-do to our Star: The Sun! This amazing picture was taken by amateur astronomer Alan Friedman - read more about how he took this picture here.

Click for big, as always. As always, of course, the closer you look at something, the weirder it becomes. I can't help but see an embryo in the above picture.

Bonus shot: Same sun, shining far away:
Our old friend Cassini caught this reflection off a methane lake on the surface of Titan - amazing, eh?
