NASA shares a spooky Halloween Pumpkin picture of the Sun, which seemed to be glowing with a jack-‘o’ lantern face.
The picture was of the real Sun’s surface where the active regions seemed to have slanted eyes and a grim smile, like that of a pumpkin face.
The picture was clicked by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory from the orbit of the Sun and could fool anyone to be a real pumpkin.
However, it has been known from sources that the picture is not of 2019, but of 2014, when the activity of the Sun was maximum, and several sunspots were observed.
NASA’s post also had an accompanying caption to it, which read that their biggest star is also celebrating Halloween in its way.
- NASA astronauts complete their first-ever female spacewalk on the International Space Station (ISS)
- The ice cliffs of Antarctica may not prove to be as harmful to the environment as you thought of them
- You’ll be shocked to know that there are other Earths, outside Earth
NASA further explained that the image had been formed after the two extreme ultraviolet wavelengths of 171 and 193 Ångströms got blended. After some time, the picture seemed to be something like a Halloween pumpkin.
Reportedly, there will be more explosions of the Sun eventually, approximately, after eleven years wherein, the Sun goes from very active to less active. However, it is tracked to go through a quiet phase.
