See the raging inferno of the sun’s surface captured in the winning and shortlisted entrees for the 2018 Our Sun category of Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year.

This photograph stood out as a superb example of documentation of a phenomenon that played with representation by taking the black and white data and describing space and movement resonant of early magnetic field and scientific analogue photography.
