Solar system: the sun
3-D Images of the Sun NASA's Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory (STEREO) satellites have provided the first three-dimensional images of the sun. For the first time, scientists will be able to see structures in the sun's atmosphere in three dimensions. The new view will greatly aid scientists' ability to understand solar physics and there by improve space weather forecasting. This web page contains 3-D anaglyph video and images. This 3-D video can be seen with red and cyan + 3-D paper glasses

Sunspots sunspots are dark areas of irregular shape on the surface of the sun
Sunspots formation of sunspots
Sunspots formation of sunspots, Sunspots are observed to start forming at latitude 30oN and 30oS of the Sun's Equator. The regions in which sunspots are formed are known as active regions. The formation of sunspots is due to the differential rotation of the Sun. Differential rotation is a phenomenon whereby different parts of the Sun rotates at different speed
Sunspots and the solar cycle every 11 years the sun undergoes a period of activity called the "solar maximum", followed by a period of quiet called the "solar minimum". During the solar maximum there are many sunspots, solar flares, and coronal mass ejections, Educypedia
