Would not it be surprising if sun also celebrates Halloween with the world?. Recently, NASA has unveiled few combined pictures of the sun from 8 Oct in order to show sun like a Jack O Lantern. Jack O Lantern is carved pumpkin that people generally associate with Halloween.
In these images scientists merged two different wavelengths that usually emerge in gold and yellow color. One wavelength is about 171 and the other is nearly of 193 angstroms. These two wavelengths gave a monstrous look through the first coating of the pumpkin and hollow internal side.
Moreover, NASA informed that they utilized some special instruments to examine the light of the sun since it is difficult to view this light with naked eyes. These three instruments the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager, the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly and the Extreme ultraviolet Variability Experiment played a vital role in the formation of these images.
The 193 angstrom displays relatively hotter area of the corona. This aura of plasma wraps the entire sun and is merely visible at the time of solar eclipse.
On the other hand, the 171 angstrom demonstrates the atmosphere of the sun and the massive arcs of the corona.
The website of NASA stated that the active areas seem brighter due to the amount of energy and light it releases. These active regions indicate the powerful and complicated field of the corona which is present in the atmosphere of the sun.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory is particularly designed to analyze the impact of the sun on Earth and its surroundings. SDO took all these pictures that show 171 in gold and 193 angstrom in yellow color.
