Looks like every other close-up of the sun I've ever seen.

I just love imagining the intense electromagnetic forces involved in the creation of each of those loops.  They would turn the hardest piece of steel you can think of into silly putty even if you completely ignore the intense heat at that range.

Only dream I ever have... is it the surface of the sun? Every time I shut my eyes... it's always the same.

Just so you'll know, it looks much cooler through a pair of binoculars.

With a filter of course! you can't see all that loopy stuff but it's more fun than looking at a picture, Kinda like looking at the moon through binoculars is better than looking at a photo.
