Just in time for Halloween, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory snapped a few pics of the sun in the 171 to 193 Angstrom range. Overlapping these snaps created an interesting image that just about looks like the old Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington!

In this range most of the sun’s activity fades to black, but the truly hot flares show in stunning detail!

See the fantastic pic below!
