Four Billion BCE: Battered Earth SSERVI, NASA | No place on Earth was safe. Four billion years ago, during the Hadeaneon, our Solar System was a dangerous shooting gallery of large and dangerous rocks and ice chunks. This illustration depicts how Earth might have looked during this epoch, with circular impact features dotting the daylight side, and hot lava flows visible in the night. One billion years later, in a calmer Solar System, Earth's first supercontinent formed!

Does this dark ball look familiar? If so, that might be because it is our Sun. In the above image, a detailed solar view was captured originally in a very specific color of red light, then rendered in black and white, and then color inverted. The resulting image was added to a starfield, then also color inverted. Visible in the image of the Sun are long light filaments, dark active regions, prominences peaking around the edge, and a moving carpet of hot gas.
