solar nirvana

This has been a glorious week for solar observers! Led by large sunspot region AR1339, the sun's disk is alive with activity... the most dynamic show in many years. I made two interpretations - which do you prefer? A close-up view of 1339 can be seen here.

Many folks discovered this sun image on the Discovery Channel and on Discover magazine's Bad Astronomy blog.
