Caption: In this image the sun peppered with groups of sunspots over almost nine days between July and August 2012. The sunspots seen in this image have been sources of the solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CME). In this image particulary, the sun is approaching solar maximum in its cycle (solar cycle), where we see many spots forming along the suns' equator. These sunspots and activity are seen in the southern hemisphere, before then most of the activity was on the northern hemisphere.

Caption: تُبين هذه الصورة مجموعات من البقع الشمسية التي ظهرت على مدار تسعة أيام تقريبا بين شهري تموز واب سنة 2012. البقع الشمسية في هذه الصورة هي مصادر للتوهجات الشمسية والانبعاث الكتلي الإكليلي. في هذه الصورة على وجه الخصوص ، تقترب الشمس من الحد الأقصى لدورتها (الدورة الشمسية: هي التغير الدوري في النشاط الشمسي بما في ذلك التغيرات في مستويات الإشعاع الشمسي ، وكذلك تغيرات في مظهر الشمس ، مثل البقع الشمسية ووهج الشمس )، حيث نرى العديد من البقع تتشكل على امتداد خط الاستواء الشمسي. وتشاهد هذه البقع الشمسية والنشاط في النصف الجنوبي للشمس، قبل ذلك كان معظم النشاط في النصف الشمالي.

Caption: In questa immagine il Sole è stato punteggiato da gruppi di macchie solari per quasi nove giorni tra luglio e agosto 2012. Le macchie solari osservate in questa immagine sono state fonte di brillamenti solari ed espulsioni di massa coronale (CME). In questa immagine, in particolare, il Sole si sta avvicinando al massimo solare del suo ciclo (ciclo solare), dove vediamo formarsi molte macchie lungo l'equatore del Sole. Queste macchie solari e l'attività sono visibili nell'emisfero meridionale, mentre prima la maggior parte dell'attività aveva luogo nell'emisfero settentrionale.
