A Redittor captivated a large number of users on the social media platform by posting a crystal-clear image of the Sun captured by a specially designed telescope. The now viral image shows the detailed structure of the Sun’s surface covered in plasma ripples.
Shared by user named ajamesmccarthy on Sub-Reddit Pics, the image was captioned, “I captured a 145 megapixel image of our sun using a specially modified telescope. Zoomed in.”
Since being shared, the post has amassed over 36,000 likes and numerous comments. Users of the social media platform became so anxious to know the identity of the user while others were stunned by the quality of the image.
One user wrote: “And you work at NASA or something with a team of engineers, opticians and such? I mean please say that it will make me feel better in a way or another.”
Another said: “I’m all over the pictures in your posts. Absolutely amazing.”
“I had to check the link just to make sure it wasn’t another chorizo situation,” wrote a third user.
The user said the telescope used to capture the image had been modified. It is a well-known fact that looking directly at the Sun, with the naked eye or through an ordinary telescope, is extremely dangerous.
According to the Australian Academy of Sciences, if people look directly at the Sun with their bare eyes, or any other source of vibrant light, exposed retinal tissue can be injured.
last month, a French scientist tweeted a photo of a slice of chorizo and claimed it was an image of a distant star acquired by the James Webb Space Telescope. He later apologized for doing this.
On July 31, a prominent French physicist named Etienne Klein shared the image of the Spicy Spanish Sausage on Twitter, saying it was the most recent image captured by NASA’s James Webb Telescope. Mr. Klein is Director of the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission in France.
The image that went viral on social media looked like a fiery red ball with terrifying points of light glowing against a black background. The post received over 15,000 likes and over 2,000 retweets.
