Heliosphere (study)

This new study for a larger piece that's currently on my easel goes up for sale on ‪‎Everyday Original‬ tomorrow morning at 10am EDT.

The heliosphere is the region of space that surrounds our solar system, where the solar wind (plasma) from our sun radiates outward and the magnetic field of the sun dominates space. This area ends well beyond Pluto, where it meets the interstellar medium and it's boundary protects our solar system from most of the galactic cosmic rays coming from outside of it. More about the heliosphere.
