NASA: The Sun Gets A Face Lift

NASA puts on the “cool” glasses and sees some trippy images of the Sun:

“These initial images show a dynamic sun that I had never seen in more
than 40 years of solar research,” said Richard Fisher, director of the
Heliophysics Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “SDO will
change our understanding of the sun and its processes, which affect our
lives and society. This mission will have a huge impact on science,
similar to the impact of the Hubble Space Telescope on modern
astrophysics.”
