The Sun

Next

The center of our Solar System. It is approximately 93 million miles (149.6 million km) away from us. Light takes around 8 minutes to reach us. It's diameter is 870,000 miles (1.4 million km) , and rotates at the equator in 25 days.

Note:

The images I have taken with the hydrogen-alpha telescope are either taken with a monochrome camera or just the red channel of a color camera. When I convert these to colors shown below, they end up being whatever color that I happen to feel like at the moment. 

Most recent image is first.
