Four billion years from now our sun might look a little like this except for one striking difference.
It will not have those ever changing sunspots that dance across the face of the sun as we see it in the sky today.
Well at least you would if you were looking at it through welding google strength sunglasses.
It’s red in this image because I’ve used a filter to remove most of that yellow white light we would normally see and turn it into that future red giant we really don’t want to see any time soon.
