8 Views

⁣NASA and the European Space Agency published the closest pictures of the Sun to have ever obtained on Thursday. The image were made by the Solar Orbiter spacecraft, a collaboration project of the two institutions, in mid-June.


The Solar Orbiter uses telescopes that were able to capture the upper layers of the Sun's atmosphere with a temperature of around one million degrees.


The images reveal a multitude of small flaring loops, erupting bright spots and dark, moving fibrils, know as ‘campfires'.
