Solar Flare: Prominence: Copyright 2014- All rights reserved www.cpalms.org Sunspots They are found on the Photosphere Due to the difference in temperature Caused by convection currents Usually go in an 11 year activity cycle

Appear dark because of the temperature difference A cooler than the rest of the surface Copyright 2014- All rights reserved www.cpalms.org Solar Flare They exit out of the Photosphere Release of radiation from the Suns surface Explodes directly outward from the Sun Causes Solar wind

A Burst of radiation that is invisible and travels outward from the Sun Happens due to a weak area in the Suns magnetic field on the surface that break for an instance and allows radiation to come Copyright 2014- All rights reserved www.cpalms.org through Prominence

They are found on the Photosphere Loops of gas that exit the Sun and are pulled back into the Sun Huge! The largest record prominence was over 500,000 miles high Prominence= LOOP! Solar Flare= Straight Copyright 2014- All rights reserved www.cpalms.org Features of the Sun
