Hi Samuele,

The aurora U see was for all created by me, in no complex mode, as u can see in the source file so u don't have to recreate it cos as I done all by myself it's totally open.
I used the Cloud effect

but I color the cloud, and then I distort the cloud, apply the Screen Mode Blending layer Effect and that's all, i don't think we need any license.
I thought that you created the original version of the artwork in Photoshop and converted to XCF afterwards. How did you distort the cloud in the starburst formation? The tutorial does not cover this, only creating the cloud. I spent quite some time attempting this on my own and could not reproduce it. I'm not asking about the clouds - those are obviously generated by a clouds plugin either in photoshop or gimp - I am wondering about the starburst effect/distortion. I'd like to be able to reproduce it. Here's some examples from your XCFs to show exactly what I mean:

From Solar_gimp_1900x1200.xcf.bz2, marked as Layer 1:

From Solar_1280x1024.xcf.bz2, marked as "Night Flare":

Can you teach me how to achieve this effect?
There're one layers cloned in 4 different layer distorted and opacity changed "coming" from that image:

This photo coming from a mine old shoot, It taked a lot of time to recover it cos for "coming" I mean that I worked on this moon as a file apart than incorporate it in to my graphic and then now I have to recover it.
I was surprised to see that you didn't mention this photo earlier, only uploaded it to your account today, and that it has no EXIF data. What kind of equipment did you use to take it? It's quite an impressive photo.
