Black Sun: Picture of the Day 10/14/12

Our sun. Source

This familiar image is actually our sun. It was taken in black and white, focusing on a very specific wavelength of light, and then the picture was inverted and placed on an inverted star field background. Apart from being quite interesting to look at, this picture also highlights the filaments on the solar surface.
