This image of the Sun, captured on the morning of June 12, 2011, is a composite of two images that were combined to show the prominences and surface together. We think the bright prominence to the left of the large center one looks like the shape of a person that is pointing to the big, center prom. The image was processed in false-color, then cropped to remove the bad edges that resulted from aligning the two images.
