Sun yellow, purple and red | kokehtz
The sun emits light full range. Until recently, only professionals telescopes could observe the Sun in several wavelengths.Today in amateur telescopes can observe in 3 wavelengths. Cak, H-Alpha and white light.
In the CaK picture you can see some white areas called “plages” that are created when hot gas entering the photosphere in the chromosphere. You can also see crackly textured surface, various sunspots, granulation and “orange peel” over the entire surface. You can see a incredible flare, a prominence of about 1/4 of the diameter of the Sun, or what is the same, the size of 25 Earths.
In the H-Alpha picture, several prominences are visible. Active areas of the Sun are marked by dark plages.
In the white light picture, you can see the photosphere, spots with umbra and penumbra, also solar faculae are visibles.
