I wouldn't have put it in the astrophotography section, there are images here but there to complement the discussion, I would have had it in the "Solar System Objects" forum or leave it where it was.

I'd agree with that too.

Amazing !!!
To think that this thing is nearly the same size as the sun itself, its a truly amazing object.
I was thinking about how to figure out the size of the tail behind it, is there an equation for calculating the tail behind it given the distance from the sun, the strength of the solar wind at that distance, its motion and out gassing rate ???
