The wings were 250 kilometers across and gossamer-thin, stretched across
a tubular frame.  Her pilot's pouch was a dot on the underside of the
structure.  She released the lockdowns and felt her stomach climb her
throat as the glider dropped from the carryall.

She trimmed her dive.  The enormous bird was painfully unresponsive,
but the updraft of light and particles eventually turned her nose to

Unable to resist, she diverted slightly to shoot the tube of a large
prominence.  Two hours later she reached the aleph-nine sunspot and
started to photograph.
