Some very good ones. Can't decide on my favourite

ETA

I think I've now decide its this one of the ISS, partly because it was a single shot, with no clipping

Yes, that sun is marvellous. It's the size and character of those immense spiralling sun-hairs in their unusually pale hue. Each one of them, even the smallest and wispiest weakling among them I bet, could engulf and incinerate our planet instantly and not even register a shadow in the process.

What's illuminating the moon then? Seems a bit bright to be earthshine.
