Our Sun , captured in time, at four different wavelengths. Did you know the sun’s corona is actually hotter than the surface? That’s what  Brian Cox , the  Bowie  of physicists, says.  It amazes me that this magnificent orb is so basic and fundamental to our existence; to the point that we take it for granted. I am a jolly, sunny idiot.
