Around the Solar System

Now dozens of spacecraft travel through our solar system, and we decided that we would do well to look at the pictures of the great celestial body made by NASA and ESA during their travels far from Mercury, Earth, Moon, Mars, Saturn and several "intermediate stations" . Collected here are photos taken in our solar system on a scale of one inch to millions of kilometers.

September 8, 2010 in the sun erupted class C3. When sunspot turns away from the Earth, the active region erupted, producing a solar flare and a fantastic bulge. The flash also produced coronary mass ejection into space.
