zerostatereflex: Detailed View of a Solar Eclipse Corona "Only in the fleeting darkness of a total solar eclipse is the light of the solar corona easily visible."
chrippyshit: physicstoconsciousness: The Sun is better than artThis incredible image was produced using data from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) taken on January 17, 2003. This is the sun photographed as it was building towards a major eruption.SDO carries imaging instruments that photograph different wavelengths of light released from the sun. If you remember your physics, there is a relationship between the wavelength of light, the frequency of the light, and the energy of the light, so SDO images basically reflect the temperature of the sun.The colors in this shot are 3 different wavelengths of light. Temperature across the sun’s surface and in its corona varies as gases are moved around by convection and by the sun’s powerful magnetic field. Images like this are both gorgeous and help scientists understand the forces churning beneath the surface of the body at the heart of the solar system.-JBBImage credit: NASA Goddard/SDO I almost cried…
seven-devils-in-my-house: fierocity: imyobabyy: lady-medic: In case anyone wanted to know what a lightening strike can do to the body- given that they survive. Woah I’ve reblogged this before but I didn’t know it was from a lightning strike. That’s insane. -
intrepidprofessor: plasmatics-life: Milky Way | (by Carlos Maxwell) "You don’t understand.For every light you turn off, more lights come out.”I love the wilderness, but if anything, I love it even more at night without any nearby light sources. The farther away you are from civilization, the brighter the sky will be.
