Three Dimensional Sun

This image was pieced together from images taken by NASA’s two STEREO satellites. In being able to see with this new perception scientists were able to gain insight into the rapidly changing surface of the Sun.
This has helped scientists to better understand and predict such things as solar flares and CMEs (Coronal Mass Ejections) which can post a threat to Earth’s infrastructure and also to astronauts who reside in orbit around our blue sphere of life.
If you wanna see this image in its full beauty you should whip out those old red-blue 3D glasses you got at the movies and have a good look. Keep an eye out for the solar prominence near the top of the image.
