Not sure if anyone else finds this picture as amazing as I did, but maybe there are some out there that would like to use it as a background. Its attached to this post as well as you can download the re-sized for 480x360 here:

More info about SDO here:
SDO | Solar Dynamics Observatory

If you want the original sized picture, I got it from here: (Warning, it's massive)
http://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/assets/img/...20100330st.tif

Personally I'm really looking forward to more pictures sent back from the Solar Dynamics Observatory in the future. Just so happened this worked as a perfect background for some themes I'm making, and so I thought I'd share it with the people here.
