NASA Releases Spooky Photos of Jack-O-Lantern Sun
SAN ANGELO, TX -- The National Aeronautics and Space Administration released a photo yesterday morning depicting the sun getting into the Halloween Spirit.
According to NASA, on October 28, an image was released that shows the sun looking like the Halloween decoration, a Jack-o-Lantern.
The active regions in this image appear brighter because those are areas that emit more light and energy. They are markers of an intense and complex set of magnetic fields hovering in the sun’s atmosphere, the corona. This image blends together two sets of extreme ultraviolet wavelengths at 171 and 193 Ångströms, typically colorized in gold and yellow, to create a particularly Halloween-like appearance.
The picture was taken by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.
