Looks Like A Flaming Orange...


Here all this time, I thought our sun was yellow...doesn't appear to be any more yellow than those orange "Yellow" trucks you see here and there. The sun appears orange in the picture due to certain lenses in order to be able to view it by dimming its brightness. Of course, the sun is actually white, but distance and earth's atmosphere make the sun appear yellow to us. Nonetheless, this picture was captured by twin satellites in order to display the significantly large solar prominence or flare at the top of the picture.

Blessings, Don
