New data released from ESA’s Solar Orbiter suggests that campfires, or fire spheres, are formed under a process that heats the outer layer of the sun.

Study on Sun’s Temperature: Whenever the heat rises on the earth, then everyone starts talking about the heat of the sun. If the sun which is far away from the earth, still heats the land here, can you guess what its temperature will be? Information related to this has come out in a study. Which shows that the outer layer of the sun is so hot that its temperature reaches 1.7 million degrees Fahrenheit (Temperature of Sun). The reason behind this has been told to the campfire occurring on the surface. The small flarers of the sun are known as campfires (small shells of fire).
In June last year, the European Space Agency released the closest pictures of the sun so far. These pictures were taken with the help of solar orbiter. In which the campfire can be seen in the dotted areas on the surface of the sun. Fireballs were seen in the pictures. Whose brightness varies from 10 seconds to 200 seconds. New data released from ESA’s Solar Orbiter suggests that campfires, or fire spheres, are formed under a process that heats the outer layer of the sun. Due to which its temperature reaches 1.7 million Fahrenheit.
The biggest secret of solar physics
The outer layer of the sun is 300 times warmer than the lower layer. This is such an event, scientists around the world are shocked to know about it. It is also seen as the biggest mystery of solar physics. The explosion of solar flares (sudden sharp changes in the brightness of the sun) can cause radio and magnetic disturbances on Earth. NASA’s orbiter took these pictures of the sun from 70 million kilometers away. Yellow and dark smoke was seen in the pictures.
Based on computer simulations
Talking about the recent study, it is based on Computer Simulations, which has been completed by the international team of explorers in association with ESA. To this, Professor Haradi Peter of the Max Planck Institute of Solar Systems Research, Germany, said, “Our model detects the emission or energy of energy.” However, the explorers believe that their work is still in the initial stage and further observation is needed to confirm the things discovered. Professor Peter said, ‘We are eager to see what more information we get from the model, so that our theories related to this heating process can be improved.’
