the Photo was taken with a probe in the framework of the project Solar Orbiter. In the pictures you can see the flares, which are millions of times less than solar flares. According to scientists, they play an important role in the phenomenon of the heating of the solar corona — corona 200-500 times hotter layers beneath it, BBC reports.

According to media reports, the office of the project Solar Orbiter was launched from Cape Canaveral in February of this year to obtain new data about the Sun.
