Tonight's Sky for October 14: the Scary Man in the Sun

While the photos may now be a week old, NASA released some decidedly spooky-looking pictures of the Sun. While the Sun doesn't have a 'face' like the Moon as seen in visible light, when viewed at specific wavelengths, the plain (save sunspots) solar disc transforms into a seething cauldron, which can exhibit some weird patterns. While I could go into great detail explaining the pictures, just go to space.com and see for yourself!
