“Active regions on the sun combined to look something like a jack-o’-lantern’s face on Oct. 8, 2014,” explains NASA in a post on its sito web giovedi. “The active regions appear brighter because those are areas that emit more light and energy – markers of an intense and complex set of magnetic fields hovering in the sun’s atmosphere, the corona.”

“This image blends together two sets of wavelengths at 171 e 193 angstroms, typically colorized in gold and yellow, to create a particularly Halloween-like appearance,” the space agency added.

Il angstrom measurement is used for the wavelength of light. “This image is a blend of 171 e 193 angstrom light as captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory,” NASA explained in the post.

All'inizio di quest'anno, NASA released a stunning 61-minute time-lapse video that shows a decade in the life of the sole. The video was created from images taken by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The space agency released the time-lapse video to mark SDO’s 10th year in space. During its time in space, the SDO has also observed solar tornadoes, giant waves in plasma on the solar surface, polar coronal holes and magnetic explosions.
