Square GROUPER is what you mean. There is a local chain of restaurants named for it.
Gotta add the most popular name: "Black Stripe Grouper"

Being a little short of spacecraft this month, I did NOT take the picture below. It was taken by the ESU Solar Orbiter satellite from about 30 million miles or 2/3rds of the way from earth to the sun. I'm thinking it starts getting pretty hot if you try parking a satellite any closer.

If you want the high resolution (56 meg) of this picture for some reason, it can be downloaded here: https://www.esa.int/ESA_Multimedia/Images/2022/03/The_Sun_in_high_resolution

For scale, the earth superimposed on the sun would be 1/12,000th the size of the sun. The entire earth would be the size of one of the smallest lighter spots below.

What do you do down there? Work? Or you permanently retired?
