Sun Stuff

APOD has an amazing picture and story today about a huge star that exploded 170,000 years ago. The gases produced are seen expanding out at huge velocities and temperatures!
Then there’s a picture of a solar eclipse on photosig. I’m jealous, because for some reason, *every* time there’s such an event over Ireland the sky is cloudy. Every single time. *grrr*
