I used to be friends with Miles Davis. He didn’t like many folks. I lived across the street from him. He would call me up sometimes — ‘I got some fish I wanna cook up for ya.’ I went up there, and he was on a couch, looking out the window. He was just rapt. I said, ‘What’re you watching, Miles?’ He said, ‘The traffic. Where are all these motherfuckers goin’?’Rip Torn (via taintedsenses)
NASA’s newest sun-watching satellite, the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS), sent back its first image of the Sun’s lower atmosphere on June 25 - the clearest picture ever of this mysterious region.
A large dark sunspot is visible in the lower right of the image, but its surroundings are filled with previously unseen features that NASA describes as “a multitude of thin, fibril-like structures.”
