The Sun showed its Halloween spirit this week by putting on its best spooky jack-o’lantern face. The incredible image above was captured by NASA on October 8, 2014 and shows active regions on the sun combined to create the spooky image. The sun’s active regions, a storm of magnetic fields, appear brighter because they are emitting more light and energy. This image above blends together two sets of wavelengths at 171 and 193 Angstroms, typically colorized in gold and yellow, to create a particularly Halloween-like appearance.

Geek Slop understands geeks (because we are geeks) and their fondness for inventive gear and hard-to-find collectibles!
We take great care to ensure the product arrives to you in the same condition it came to us. At our online geek store, all items are carefully wrapped and padded to help prevent scratches and reduce the risk of damage. We use only the highest quality boxes and seal all corners and seams to reduce risk of water/liquid damage during transit.
We curate the pop culture market for you, evaluating and selecting only the best from hundreds of the most popular manufacturers.
We consider our customers to be part of an exclusive community and as such, we never stop providing service for them. We monitor the value of our customers’ collectibles even after we’ve sold them – and we let our customers know when the value of their collectible has increased or substantially changed. What other online geek store does this!?!
