  • Stupid Question

    I was thinking last night.. We see pictures from space and the moon where everything is really bright but i neever seen a picture of the sun from outer space.. Does it look the same as it does from earth?

    Wish I had a stupid answer.

    But not passing through earth's atmosphere one would assume that it looks different in space than it does standing on the third rock from it... probably more like a star and less like a big bright round ball.

      Too bright for standard photography.
      A different astronomy and space science related image is featured each day, along with a brief explanation.

      How about these?

                The light is not difused by the atmosphere - thus the black background.

                    Maybe he needs to see a "Refractory" for help. They can do miracles today.

                        Better a 4" refractor than a 4" reflector...
