China, on Aug 13, 2003

Made two shots one after the other. Whats rare on this pix, a tiny cloud reveals the actually size of the persona surounded by the huge mass of light. On the second: again this monstrous sun, same camera setting.
Compare the relative size of the White Persona here, particularly in the red cast sunset photo, to the photos catpured on August 2, same photographer, same location. The moons are now lost in the red and gray dust of the tail swirling increasingly toward Earth now. Note that the very dirty gray clouds are seen in the skies, accompanying the arrival of the red dust.
