The top image shows a composite of 25 separate images from April 16, 2012, to April 15, 2013, revealing the most active regions during this part of the solar cycle.
All planes were shot against a clear blue sky and chroma-keyed together against a cloudy sky background. All inspired, of course, by Ho-Yeol Ryu’s composite of take-offs at Hannover Airport (top pic)
