NASA shared a creepy picture of the sun ahead of Halloween and it is freaking out everyone.
The picture that was shared by NASA showed the active regions of the sun, which created a grimacing smile and eyes.
NASA shared an image of the sun’s surface that was captured in 2014 when the activity reportedly reached “solar maximum”, which means more sunspots were seen.
While posting the picture, NASA said, “Even our star celebrates the spooky season — in 2014, active regions on the Sun created this jack-o’-lantern face, as seen in ultraviolet light by our Solar Dynamics Observatory satellite.”
The image was captured by Solar Dynamics Observatory, which is monitoring the sun since 2010.
The Solar Dynamics Observatory was launched in 2010 and was part of the “Living With A Star” program.
The program aims to form a scientific understanding of how the system of Sun and Earth affects life on our planet.
NASA said that the brighter spots on the Sun are the active regions, which burst out more energy and light.
The brighter spots are signs of intense magnetic fields that drift in the atmosphere of the sun.
The picture shared by NASA is a combination of 2 sets of extreme ultraviolet wavelengths that are named namely 171 and 193 Ångströms (units of length). The wavelengths are gold and yellow in color.
