Huge Face on the Sun!

Permalink

There is an incredible “smiley face”, or a face with an expression, on the surface of the sun!

Similar to looking at clouds and seeing recognizable shapes from time to time, at this moment, the sun has a face on it.

Actually, the eyes are sunspots 1133 and 1131, while the mouth is what’s left of the huge magnetic filament of earlier this week.

All three of these features are now facing the Earth.

It has been pretty amazing observing the many recent features on the sun lately, and this one is fairly remarkable.

Enjoy…
