A giant new composite photo by Andrew McCarthy reveals of the sun as never seen before.
From dark spots and wispy flares to coronal loops that burst upward in brilliant arches. The image shows such small-scale details.
“Fire and Fusion,” is a 300-megapixel image that reveals the feathery details swirling around the sun.
Prints and full-resolution files of extraordinary detail are available on McCarthy’s site. To see more astrophotography by McCarthy, check out his Instagram feed.
