The Sun, Our Liv­ing Star

All About Space - - Launch Pad -

The most mas­sive ob­ject in our So­lar Sys­tem, the Sun, has its in­flu­ence felt at the fur­thest reaches of the so­lar neigh­bour­hood. On Earth, its in­flu­ence is vi­tal for cre­at­ing and main­tain­ing life as we know it, which is why ESO have an­nounced a col­lec­tion of free, high-qual­ity plan­e­tar­ium ma­te­rial ti­tled The Sun, Our Liv­ing Star.

This un­usual face of the Sun re­veals the move­ment of highly en­er­getic par­ti­cles cours­ing around its outer at­mos­phere and vi­o­lent ex­pul­sions of ma­te­rial, that are

vis­i­ble on the right of this im­age.
