STEREO image of the Sun

This is an actual photo of the Sun taken by NASA’s Stereo satellite on 4 December 2006 (launched late October last year) and captures “the sun’s roiling surface and atmosphere at temperatures around one million Kelvin (1.8 million degrees Fahrenheit)” – that’s hot! OUCH!

Kinda reminds me of when Lrrr from Omicron Persei VIII tells us puny Earthlings “We will raise your planets temperature by one million degrees a day, for five days…” – now that I have a visual idea of how hot that would be, all I have to say is GIVE THEM McNEIL!!!!
