This new image of the Sun , taken from just 77 million km from its surface, is the closest that has ever been obtained by camera.
The photo is from the European Space Agency's Solar Orbiter (SolO), which launched earlier this year.
Among the new insights gained by the SolO spacecraft is the sight of mini flares dubbed "bonfires".
This flare is a millionth of the size of the Sun's giant flares routinely observed by Earth's telescopes.
Whether this miniature version is caused by the same mechanism remains unclear. But these tiny flares could be involved in a mysterious heating process that makes the Sun's outer atmosphere, or corona, much hotter than its surface .
Have you ever seen a photo of the Sun's surface? Or have you ever tried to take photos of the sun using your HP or digital camera?
Here, Jaka collects a number of photos of the Sun's surface that are very rare and difficult to take. Like a photo during a solar eclipse phenomenon .
This photo is not from Jaka himself who took it, but from Paul Andrew, a retired photography lecturer from Dover, Kent, England.
I was so impressed by these photos that they became viral in various foreign media and social media as well. Come on, see what kind of photos?
1. Using the Lunt 152 telescope, Paul Andrew, a 66-year-old retired photography lecturer from Dover, Kent, England, succeeded in obtaining a portrait of the Sun's surface. Then he made a series of detailed photos of the Sun's surface.
3. In this photo an image of the Earth is added to show the contrast and comparison of the size of the Sun with the Blue planet.
