Daily Inspiration: Phantoms of the Sun

Courtesy of Universe Today, I bring you a phenomenon known as a "prominence" of the sun. Monty Leventhal, an amateur astronomer, estimates that the pillar stands more than 98,000 miles from the Sun's surface.

It's a terrific photo, and you can imagine the creative possibilities (especially if you're a giant nerd like me).

Anyway, it just goes to show: nature wins at life.
