NASA image of the day: Spooky Sun

This photo, obtained by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, shows active regions on the Sun. The image looks like a jack-o-lantern! Our star's active regions, located in the corona, are those that emit more light and energy than other areas.  The image is a blend of two images captured in the ultraviolet wavelength at a range that is typically orange or yellow in color. Courtesy NASA/Solar Dynamics Observatory.
