Summer Sun, 2017

Summer Sun, 2017

The sun as seen through a mix of fog and forest fire smoke. The tiny black speck on the sun is a sunspot called AR2665 that’s 74,560 miles wide – about 19 times bigger than Earth. Yeah, the sun is quite large. It’s feared the gigantic blemish is unstable enough to produce an “M-class” solar flare... would create some amazing auroras, but also threaten communication satellites and astronauts living on the ISS...
