The image shown is received in the spectrum near Ni and I, line 6788 angstrom. The most remarkable features are sunspots. The image is very similar to how looks the Sun in the visible spectrum (for example, looking at the Sun using a special tinted glass. Remember never to look at the Sun without sunscreen devices!). The image shows the magnetic field in the solar photosphere, with black and white spots showing opposite poles.
