The Sun spread around them, a bubbling plain. She had notched the air conditioning cooler but it didnt help much. Geysers burst in gaudy reds and actinic violets from the yellow-white froth. The solar coronal arch was just peeking over the horizon, like a wedding ring stuck halfway into boiling white mud. A monster, over ...
