Artist's description:

The Corona ( from the latin "crown" ) is the plasma atmosphere surrounding the sun above the photosphere and chromosphere. The Corona is 200 times hotter than the Sun's surface and can reaches temperatures well above 2m kelvin.

The mechanisms that drive the corona are not fully understood although we know this ferocious region stretches many millions of miles into space. Early astronomers first noticed that the sun was "on fire" during solar eclipse's and our nearby star has now been under contant observation for over 300yrs.
