Scientists reveal closest images of the sun
A European and NASA spacecraft has snapped the closest pictures ever taken of the sun, revealing countless little "campfires" flaring everywhere.
the images that we're going to see soon were taken around the time of our first close approach to the sun, which was at 77 million kilometers, which is just over half the distance between sun and earth. And ah, so this is not quite as close as we will eventually get. Our closest approach will be just over 1/4 off the distance between the sun and birth. And we will reach that in ah, about two years time. Right? So the very first high resolution images that we took were not pointing anywhere. Specifically, we are seeing a small disk, part of the solar. This scared off the corona, which we essentially called the quiet Corona quiet, meaning that nothing is supposed to happen here. But then when you look at it at high resolution, it's amazing in the smallest details How much stuff is going on there? Uh, we couldn't believe this may be first all this and we started giving it crazy names like campfires and dark fibre ALS on ghosts and whatever be so eso There is so much new small phenomena going off on the smaller scale that we are like starting a new vocabulary to give it all names. And many of those things have been seen before at bigger scales, but never got this small scales in the quiet corona.
