NASA recently showed a very “halloween-ish” picture of the sun. The image showed the sun doing its best impression of a scary jack-o-lantern! The image was taken on October 8th by its Solar Dynamics Observatory satellite.
The space agency said that the photo is the result of certain areas of the sun burning more intensely than other parts. The brighter images are giving off more light and energy than the darker areas.
In any case, the resulting picture of the sun is sure a spooky image that’s just right for October 31st! Any thoughts on the sun’s costume?
