The Sun is So Awesome

In the most literal sense of the word.

We know that moms are always like, "Hey, don't look at the sun, it'll blind you" or whatever, but that's because those worrywarts think you'll be looking at the sun with your human eyes. That's all in the past!

Every day, new images of the sun captured at the ultraviolet and x-ray wavelengths are made available online. Though the pictures look like lava lamp explosions in the sky, they truly are images of our favourite source of photons, delivered to the internet via NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory.

They're so fascinating that you'll never have that irresistible urge to take off your shades and stare upwards on a cloudless day ever again (probably).
