This is one of the first three-dimensional views of the sun, taken by NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory satellites. Images like this are giving scientists first-time, 3-D views of structures in the sun's atmosphere.

This view will greatly aid scientists' ability to understand solar physics and thereby improve space weather forecasting.
