Convection Zone: The outermost layer of the sun’s interior. Hot gases rise from the bottom of the zone and cool down as they get closer to the top. The cool gases sink and form loops of gas that move energy towards the surface. www.cora.nwra.com
Solar Flare www.youtube.com Flares happen when the powerful magnetic fields in and around the sun reconnect. They're usually associated with active regions, often seen as sun spots, whe...

The Photosphere: The point where the sun becomes opaque. The photosphere is also the visible part of the sun. Since the sun is made of gas, the photosphere is not solid surface. abyss.uoregon.edu
The Core: The central region of the sun where nuclear fusion occurs under extremely high pressure and temperature. media.web.britannica.com
www.space.com Sunspots are darker, cooler areas on the surface of the sun.
Chromosphere: At the start and end of a total eclipse, a reddish glow is visible around the photosphere. This comes from the middle layer of the Earth’s atmosphere, the chromosphere. solar.physics.montana.edu Chromosphere
