This is even more awesome than the normal Celestia-before-Sunlight image is.

Don't get too close, Princess, or you'll get a bad case of sunburn!

Very cool (no pun intended) picture; it really drives home just how much of an effort raising the sun's actually got to be, and, by extension, just how powerful Celestia really is.

Great texture on the sun, too!

Dang! This is so intense! Celestia almost looks like a sunspot against the sun's burning mass.

Even know I'm still surprised that she doesn't gets at least a sunburn, since that star is over the top raiging hot.
Still, very neat.

It breaks all physical laws, even if the Sun is the same size as the Moon.

It makes more sense if you assume that there are different laws of physics in Equestria than the ones in Earth's universe. And apparently Pinkie, Discord and other characters occasionally can change/disregard the laws of physics. I personally like the explanation in "Pinkie Pie meets the Universe" fanfic.

In any case, we have to take into consideration that in the Sonic Rainboom episode, Rarity's wings burned because she got too close to the sun. How can we explain THAT?

Is Sun actually much closer to the planet's surface, like a few kilometres above? Maybe it's angular diameter to distance ratio has some unusual properties? Or maybe the energy received from the sun does not decrease with distance squared, but with some other function of distance?

Also, did the ancient Greeks actually visit Equestria, and that's where the story of Icarus took place, or was it the other way around? Maybe the Greeks stole the "artificial sun" technology from Equestria? And Icarus was one of the victims of the experiments with the imported Sun?

*Sigh*... Of course, it's a bloody fairy tale, so anything goes... 

It's just... empiricism is rooted rather well in my psyche. It's always in my habit to try and make sense of any fictional setting. I HATE it when things cannot even be logically explained. Who knows how long I have been trying to explain the Sass Squash, or how magic works in Equestria, for one thing...

Actually not. I messed around with selections, layers and blend modes and stuff. I was pretty happy with them, except for the part where they don't really look like solar flares at all. :D
