We are all star dust

 non dog related post.

Many years ago in a parking lot I saw an older man with an incredibly large telescope staring into the sun. I thought he was mad so I did what any liable person would do. I got nosy.
I ended up learning the incredible telescope was for looking into the sun, not stars and then the man let me see.
It was the most beautiful thing ever and a memory I will always cherish.
something like this...

There was a solar storm going on at the time and the sun had many spouts coming from it. To this day just the memory of it gives me chills...

I’ve been entranced with the sun since then and at any occasion try to see it.
