The Sun: Quiz

  
  

Question 1: What does the following picture show?

  History of the number of observed sunspots during the last 250 years, which shows the ~11-year solar cycle
  The sun shows a C3-class solar flare (white area on upper left), a solar tsunami (wave-like structure, upper right) and multiple filaments of magnetism lifting off the stellar surface.
  During a total solar eclipse, the solar corona can be seen with the naked eye, during the brief period of totality.

Question 2: What does the following picture show?

  Measurements of solar cycle variation during the last 30 years
  The sun shows a C3-class solar flare (white area on upper left), a solar tsunami (wave-like structure, upper right) and multiple filaments of magnetism lifting off the stellar surface.
  The Sun as it appears from the surface of Earth

Question 3: What does the following picture show?

  The Trundholm Sun chariot pulled by a horse is a sculpture believed to be illustrating an important part of Nordic Bronze Age mythology. The sculpture is probably from around 1350 BC. It is displayed at the National Museum of Denmark.

  During a total solar eclipse, the solar corona can be seen with the naked eye, during the brief period of totality.
  The effective temperature, or black body temperature, of the Sun (5777 K) is the temperature a black body of the same size must have to yield the same total emissive power.
  Motion of barycenter of Solar System relative to the Sun.

Question 8: What does the following picture show?

  Taken by Hinode's Solar Optical Telescope on January 12, 2007, this image of the Sun reveals the filamentary nature of the plasma connecting regions of different magnetic polarity.
  The heliospheric current sheet extends to the outer reaches of the Solar System, and results from the influence of the Sun's rotating magnetic field on the plasma in the interplanetary medium.[60]
  During a total solar eclipse, the solar corona can be seen with the naked eye, during the brief period of totality.
