a Boiling sun!

One of my casual interests is astronomy. I had the fortune to have a great college astro professor, one of the scientists behind the Cassini Hyugens mission to Saturn which has brought back so may great photos of the Ringed Planet (which meant one of my classes was devoted entirely to learning about the research results from the vessel). As a result I get warm fuzzies whenever I see pictures from the Cassini Mission.

Anyway! Today I rediscovered the Astronomy Picture of the Day site. One of the more recent posts was a short video of the surface of the sun. Orange! Motion! Doesn’t it look as if it’s boiling? This is GAS boiling, visible gas. So cool!

Double, Double, Boil and Bubble…
