Thanks to the Solar Orbiter probe, we now have new images of the Sun in unbelievable detail.

According to reports, the photo, comprised of 25 images, was taken on March 7, 2022. The probe was 46 million miles away from the Sun, placing it roughly halfway between Earth and the giant star.

It took Solar Orbiter around four hours to capture all 25 images that comprise the mosaic, and it's packed with 83 million pixels, which is 10 times better than a 4k television.

Solar Orbiter is days away from making its first close pass of the Sun, which will happen on March 26, 2022. It is also now in an orbit that will take it close to the Sun than Mercury.
