Composite image of the sun by Andrew McCarthy.

Photographer Andrew McCarthy constructed this spectacular 300-megapixel image of our sun by compositing thousands of individual images. Sunspots, coronal mass ejections, and feathery convective swirls abound. Check out his site for prints of this and other celestial images! (Image credit: A. McCarthy; via Colossal)
