      Hi 9S SHS,

      Nice question!

      I think probably this one…

      The sun looks fairly unexciting in the usual colours of light that we can see (the visible spectrum spanning red, green and blue). The picture above was one of the first pictures taken of the sun by cameras that I worked on, which sees in ultraviolet “colours”, and it shows just how complex and hostile the surface of the sun can be.

      What is your favourite Space picture?

      Good luck with the rest of the project.
