Happy Halloween!

Halloween Sun

Did you know the sun is a jack-o-lantern? Or… at least it looks like one if you use the right false colors? This is a real photograph of the sun taken in two colors. Those colors aren’t actually orange and red… they’re two flavors of x-ray at 171 and 193 angstroms. To visualize it, scientists translated those into “orange” and “red.”

In any case, here’s the sun wishing us happy halloween!


I found this image on the wonderful blog by Tom Yulsman, ImaGeo.
