Nasa’s Photo Of The Whole Sun In One Image

by | 6th, February 2011

THANKS to Nasa we can now see what the sun looks like in the round. These photographs were taken by two Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) spacecraft, one on either side of the sun.

But what’s going on at the top and the bottom?

And are we along in thinking that although these photos are incredibly vivid and skilfully produced, they lack the magic of an image that pricks the human gene and inspires?
