The surface of the sun is rarely seen in detail

Details of the changing solar system have been released. Photos released by the Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope in Hawaii show tiny objects up to 30 km above the sun. Compared to the size of the Sun, which is nearly 1.4 million kilometers in diameter and 149 million kilometers from Earth, 30 kilometers is insignificant.

The cell-shaped components we see today are about the size of Texas in the United States. These components are a collection of hot, volatile gases or plasma. The glittering centers are where the Sun’s matter is boiling, and the dark circles around it are where the plasma is freezing and sinking.

The Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope is located on the top of the 3,000-meter-high Halikala Volcano on the island of Mae on Hawaii. At 4 meters in diameter, the main image mirror is the largest in the world for an astronomical telescope. The astronomical telescope will be used to study the movement of the sun. Scientists want to know more about the changing motion of the sun, hoping to more accurately predict energy explosions, known as space weather.
