The Sharpest View of The Sun
Here is one of the sharper views of the Sun ever taken. This stunning image shows remarkable details of a dark sunspot across the image bottom and numerous boiling granules which appear like kernels of corn across the top. Taken in 2002, the picture was made using the Swedish Solar Telescope operating on the Canary Island of La Palma.

EVERYTHING IS AMAZING.

Scientific understanding imparts more wonder and awe than the most fantastical and supernatural of stories.
(BTW, eyeballing the apparent scale of this photo versus other closeups of the sun, it’s safe to say that at least two planet earths could fit within this photo. Fucking two. Planet. Earths. And this is the equivalent of zooming in on the sun’s pores. We are beautifully insignificant.)
