Stunning image of a solar tornado as tall as 14 Earths

Astrophotographers Andrew McCarthy and Jason Guenzel have recently collaborated to create an impressive image of the Sun, which features a solar tornado spinning off of it that is as tall as 14 Earths.

McCarthy captured more than 200,000 images and worked with Guenzel over five days to produce the 140-megapixel picture, which showcases an exceptional level of detail.

According to McCarthy, this image is his “most detailed Sun picture” and combines over 90,000 images that have been meticulously layered and processed to reveal the star in a way never seen before.

The photo features an artistic element that incorporates a geometrically altered image of the 2017 eclipse to display an otherwise invisible structure.

McCarthy explains that the “invisible structure” is the solar corona, which is only visible during a solar eclipse from Earth.

In an interview with PetaPixel, McCarthy mentions that great care was taken to align the two atmospheric layers in a scientifically plausible way using NASA’s SOHO data as a reference.

As per Space, the solar twister reached a height of approximately 75,000 miles (120,000 kilometers), which is equivalent to the height of 14 Earths.
