Fun is the Sun!

I just came across this gallery of breathtaking new photos of our beloved sun!
Couldn't help but think of SuperForester Carla's excellent post "Keep Us Where the Light Is."

The sun gets my vote for "object most desperately in need of re-deification." I mean, sun worship is not really a new idea, but it's a fairly convincing one. The sun IS directly responsible for all life on this planet, and when it "dies" it will take the entire solar system with it. Pretty compelling argument.

You might be convinced after checking out this gallery.
