Description

ESA’s Solar Orbiter captured this amazing imagery about 77 million kilometers (47 million miles) from the Sun. The 'campfire'-looking phenomena seen are "omnipresent miniature eruptions that could be contributing to the high temperatures of the solar corona and the origin of the solar wind," according to ESA.
