This movie was made from daily images of the
sun taken over several days. It shows the sun
as it appears in visible light - rather plain
looking, except for a few dark sunspots.
Sunspots are interesting to look at, but let's
face it they're 150 million km (93 million
miles) away from Earth. How could they possibly
! Move your cursor over the sun in the image
to see how the sun would look if your eyes could
see the sun's x-ray radiation.
