New release yesterday from NASA:
"Sunspots and Solar Flares"
"NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured this image of an M7.9 class flare on March 13, 2012 at 1:29 p.m. EDT. It is shown here in the 131 Angstrom wavelength, a wavelength particularly good for seeing solar flares and a wavelength that is typically colorized in teal."

"Photo Treat: Enceladus, Titan and Saturn’s Rings"
"Little Enceladus and enormous Titan are seen on either side of Saturn’s rings in this image, a color-composite made from raw images acquired by Cassini on March 12, 2012."

Finally, a jarringly surreal photo from the Grand Canyon:
"Toroweap and Vulcan’s Throne"
"...a dramatic view of Toroweap Point was taken from the north rim of the Grand Canyon in Arizona."
