From Earth, the Sun appears to be just a glowing yellow orb. However, the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope in Hawaii has captured new images of the Sun that reveal its violent and explosive nature. This massive four-meter telescope has the technological capabilities that are necessary to better understand the Sun’s magnetic field and outer atmosphere. The large aperture allows for greater resolution than any other solar telescope, meaning we can see clearer images than ever before. The image above was captured by this telescope. The large cells of burning plasma are visible in incredible detail. The bright centers and darker edges of these Texas-sized demonstrate the dynamic and raging motion of the Sun’s surface. Going into the future, the information collected from this telescope will spur new discoveries and a better understanding of the Sun and its impact on the solar system.
