Sunspots

Sunspots are dark areas on the Sun's surface. They appear a darker spot because in this area, it is cooler than the rest of the Sun. Every eleven years sunspots occur.

Prominence

A prominence is a big loop of glowing gas. It extends outward from the surface of the Sun. Sometimes rays from them can reach the Earth and cause there to be problems in radio signals.

Solar Flare

A solar flare is a violent explosion on the Sun. They usually occur near sunspots. They release tons of radiation (UV Rays, Gamma Rays).

Auroras

Auroras are beautiful colors in the sky. They are caused by Solar Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections. These happen depending on the strength of those. Along with Auroras, radio signals and orbiting satellites can be disrupted from it. The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) is the one seen closest to us in NC.
