The Sun as might be observed from Mars ;-)

Photo 1: Single exposure of the Sun

Photo 2: Mars some days after its opposition in 2012

Two days before the opposition of Mars, the Sun floats in space showing few spots towards the Earth and of course the Mars.
Photo 3: Seven stacked exposures

A hypothetical observer on Mars would see exactly the same side of the Sun like we do on Earth! That means he would see our neighbor star exactly as shown above, only a bit smaller.
Photo 4: Seven stacked exposures with false colors

The Sun has a diameter of 109 times that of Earth. [Source:wikipedia]
