Image of the sun

NASA always offers awesome images filled with awe-inspiring glances at distant planetary bodies and glimpses of phenomena that the average person will never see with the naked eye. But there is one part of our own solar system that seems so ordinary that most people never pay it much attention: the sun. But, of course, the sun is vital to our survival, and on January 19, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory took its 100 millionth image of this huge sphere of fire and gasses. The NASA article includes favorite images captured by the observatory, which are both beautiful and interesting since they represent such different images of the same thing. Articles like this highlight the different ways in which images can represent a single object or event.
