Staring at the Surface of the Sun

What can we learn from this image of the surface of the Sun taken in 2007 by the Swedish Solar Telescope. Well, for one, it was a surprise to me that the Sun’s surface is composed of pomegranate seeds. Very very large pomegranate seeds (the white line in the left corner measures 5000 kilometers).

And no, those little white dots aren’t confectionery sugar sprinklings, but tiny, relatively speaking, areas of concentrated magnetic fields. The Sun is a terrifying place. Delicious, but terrifying.
