What does the Sun look like up close?
Follow a sunspot over two weeks with images taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory and see how activity on the surface of the Sun is connected to Earth.
An eruption on the Sun produces a dazzling magnetic display known as coronal rain. Hot plasma cools as it flows along the magnetic field loops and falls back to the surface
