Huge Solar Prominence Lifts-off
Paolo: "When I saw that this huge prominence was starting to detach from the surface of the Sun I decided to capture its trip to space. Because of its massive size it kept a visible structure even at a great distance from the Sun’s disc. I reduced the focal length to 2m and captured six panels to make a big mosaic. That remarkable projected arm of fire reached a length of more than 700,000 km in its process of detachment."

Winner: Our Sun - Insight Astronomy Photographer of The Year Competition 2015

What the judges say:
‘I absolutely love this picture, showing the blistering kiss of the Sun on the photographic lens: it conveys how fiery, destructive, but also alluring our very own star can be.’
- Melanie Vandenbrouck

A Spiral Aurora over Iceland
What's happened to the sky? Aurora! Captured late last month, this aurora was noted by Icelanders for its great brightness and quick development. The aurora resulted from a solar storm, with high energy particles bursting out from the Sun and through a crack in Earth's protective magnetosphere a few days later. Although a spiral pattern can be discerned, creative humans might imagine the complex glow as an atmospheric apparition of any number of common icons. In the foreground of the featured image is the Ölfusá River, while the lights illuminate a bridge in Selfoss City. Just beyond the low clouds is a nearly full Moon. The liveliness of the Sun—and the resulting auroras on Earth—is slowly diminishing as the Sun emerges from a Solar maximum of surface activity and evolves towards a historically more quite period in its 11-year cycle. In fact, solar astronomers are waiting to see if the coming Solar minimum will be as unusually quiet as the last one, where sometimes months would go by with no discernible sunspots or other active solar phenomena.
