Our Sun

A full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by the new Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO ) on March 30, 2010. This is one of the 1st images released from the new probe. False colors trace different gas temperatures. Reds are relatively cool (about 107,540 F); blues and greens are hotter (greater than 1,799,540 F).

Truely amazing!
