The Chromosphere

The chromosphere is an irregular layer above the photosphere. With the extremely high temperatures it sustains, 20,000 degrees Celsius, hydrogen emits reddish light.

The Corona

The Corona is the outermost layer of the sun. It is above the photosphere and cannot be seen without a solar eclipse or a coronagraph.
