Blue Sun

bluesun.JPG

This view of sun in extrem ultraviolet, based on data capture in on july 20, shows active regions in white. Those ares would correspond to dark sunspots if one were observing the sun with a telescope and a solar filter. The active regions erupted with magnetic loops that look like slinky toys in the false- color view.
