Several wavelengths of light are combined in this New Year's Day solar flare image, on Jan. Each wavelength represents material at a different temperatures, helping scientists understand how it is moved and heated through these events.
A solar flare erupts on Jan. as seen by the bright flash on the left side of the sun, captured here by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. In the lower right corner the moon can be seen, having just passed between the observatory and the sun.
Amazingly Beautiful Blue Nebula, a massive interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases.
