where the sun ends

Dent in the Heliosphere
7 inches wide x 7 inches high

Back in December 2007, astronomers found that the sun's influence—its heliosphere—was not symmetrical. Somewhere out there, it came upon pressure from outside of its influence. I had planned on building a large art quilt, using beaded sunrays. That piece got delayed and I finally decided that it wasn't going to get done, so now I'm using its pieces for other things. The first use of a beaded ray had to be this version of Dent of the Heliosphere. Here it is.
