This really blew me away. Seriously. Watch it if you look at nothing else today.
Yes, STARE AT THE SUN, this time it's totally safe.

This is where all the discussion is, but the poster links the source here, and there's a whole lot more amazing photography meets editing.

Worth it if you're into celestial bodies.

Goosebumps...this stuff is amazing! I'm particularly fascinated by the very notion of looking at the sun and seeing some semblance of its rotation.

Wow absolutely amazing and mesmerizing to watch. Since the sun is this enormous blob of plasma, it doesn't have to rotate as one clump like solid objects do. Instead, it's divided into 4 zones/layers and each spins at a slightly different rate. The fastest zone (the equator) spins around its axis every 24 days: https://www.livescience.com/32894-does-the-sun-rotate.html
