The sun is apparently the happiest star in the universe :D It is always smiling. Astronomers from Russia photographed it.
“A smiley approximately 600,000 kilometers long and a pair of eyes 200,000 kilometers in diameter are formed by the magnetic fields of the Sun. Black areas are fields with negative polarity and the whites are those with positive polarity. The Sun’s ‘irises’ are four times bigger then the Earth – you can really drown in those eyes,” a report from the institute’s Laboratory of X-Ray Astronomy of the Sun says.
