This stunning, blood-red image of the Sun is one of the 'clearest' videos ever taken of it from earth. The amazing close-up of the star which is a staggering 93m miles from earth was captured using an ultra-sharp telescope. Astronomical photographer Andrew McCarthy has been photographing the sun and the moon for three years - but this month, he took on his "most unique challenge" yet. Using a new, ultra-sharp solar telescope, Andrew, from California, USA, was able to capture the sharpest video of the Sun he has ever taken. And Andrew's video is so clear that even the plasma right at the outer edge of the Sun can be seen on camera - dancing around in the atmosphere like a flame. This video was filmed on the 6th April 2021.
