wingryder's post of the image made my point for me, but I understand your bias in reasoning on this issue.
He posted an image of a star, and it is merely a white dot, which he perfectly illustrated the point I was making. Now, if you show me solar flares, or the stars surface with say dark spots or spinning, then you'd have a good counter point.
