This image presents a view of the Sun infrequently seen. It reminds me of images viewed through a microscope rather than a telescope. Taking something as huge as our star and presenting it in such fine detail as if observed under the microscope is a real feat of photography.
Oana Sandu, Community Coordinator and Communication Strategy Officer at the European Southern Observatory (ESO)
The use of a different colour palette to our expectations gives us an alternative way to think about the Sun.
Alan Sparrow, Chair of the UK Picture Editors’ Guild and Director of the UK Picture Editors’ Guild Awards
This is an incredible portrait of the Sun’s untameable fury – a maelstrom of seething plasma we so seldom consider as we bask in its warm rays on a peaceful day.
Tom Kerss, Public Astronomy Officer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich
I commend the creative and artistic choices made by the photographer in both the colour palette and the highlighting of the prominence with an enhanced atmospheric layer. The final image is spectacular.
