Backyard Solar Photographs

Is that a super-enlarged photograph of an itty bitty egg? Or perhaps it's some tiny ball of energy made visible thanks to a scanning electron microscope? Turns out the sentiment is right on that second guess, but the scale is all wrong. It's actually a high-definition photograph of the sun. Our sun. As in THE SUN. Alan Friedman made these telescope photographs directly from his own backyard in Buffalo New York. He then hand colored the photographs in order to deliver the finest detail of the surface of the sun. If your interest is piqued, check out his Tumblr, then follow the link to watch his Tedx Talk.
