Dont look at the sun…

We all know not to look at the sun, particularly not through a telelens… I know not to do so by experience, but I’ll leave that story for another day.

Our star is not only the provider of all the energy available to us, indeed the provider of all life as we know it, it also represents the photo in photograph.

Boston Globe’s The Big Picture has a feature on this remarkable star. (It’s safe to look at pictures).
