Blue sun!

Like many other people, I have an RSS feed on my LJ for NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day. Some amazing pictures get posted, especially the Hubble Space Telescope images, and I like to save the best ones.

I did a doubletake when I saw Wednesday's photo, however: it's a blue sun! Specifically, it's an image of our Sun with the colour inverted. It's a stunning photo, so it's well worth a look.
