NASA Shares A Photo Of The Sun That Looks Like It Already Celebrating Halloween

‘Even our star celebrates the spooky season’

Science is undoubtedly awesome. It has not only pushed the human race forward in achieving new heights but has become a key to unleashing more secrets about the universe.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), who explores and displays cool stuff about space has recently shared a picture of the Sun on their social media account. Nevertheless,  it’s appeared like a giant ball of fire fixed up in the sky, I guess!

Well, NASA post of the sun is reminiscent of an evil Jack o’ lantern

Captured by it’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, SDO on October 8, the photograph shows the active regions of the sun combined to look like a traditional Jack-o-lantern face. Perfectly fitting, since Halloween is just right the corner.

NASA captioned the photo: ‘Even our star celebrates the spooky season in 2014. The active regions on the sun brought about this Jack-o-Lantern face, as seen by our Solar Dynamics Observatory Satellite.’

NASA’s SDO was launched in 2010 as part of the Living with A Star Program. Its main goal is to form a scientific understanding of how the Sun/Earth system affects societies and life on the planet.

Wavelengths are often colorized using gold and yellow, which in turn gave this sun a creepy Halloween look

The image is a combination of two sets of Ultraviolent wavelengths named 171 and 193 Angstroms. They are colored in gold and yellow, which in turn gives an image of a creepy Halloween pumpkin look.

Early 2019, LORRI had snapped a photo the Ultimate Thule, Which appears like a snowman

And In 2014, NASA had discovered a heart-shaped Mesa on Mars
