Caption: This image shows the mid-level solar flare that was observed in March 2022 by the Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO). The SDO observes the Sun activity, hence it shows the regions on the Sun where there is activity. A solar flare is brief brightening on the sun's surface, this particular flare is an M-class, which means that it is a tenth of the size of the most intense flares, namely the X-flares. Solar flares are barely visible with the naked eye, thus the SDO. The image here, is captured in extreme ultravoilet light that was colourized by red in the SDO, the flare appears in the upper of the solar disk.

Caption: تُظهر هذه الصورة التوهج الشمسي متوسط المستوى الذي تم رصده في شهر اذار 2022 بواسطة مرصد ديناميكا الشمس (وهو عبارة عن مسبار فضائي أطلقته ناسا لدراسة الشمس). يرصد هذا المسبار الفضائي النشاط الشمسي، وبالتالي يكشف المناطق النشطة على الشمس. التوهج الشمسي هو سطوع قصير على سطح الشمس، وهذا التوهج هو من الفئة (M )، مما يعني أنه عُشر حجم التوهجات الأكثر شدة اي التوهجات من الفئة (X). التوهجات الشمسية بالكاد تكون مرئية بالعين المجردة. تم التقاط هذه الصورة في مدى الاشعة فوق البنفسجية الشديد، حيث تم تلوينها باللون الأحمر في مرصد ديناميكا الشمس، يظهر التوهج في الجزء العلوي من القرص الشمسي.

Caption: Cette image montre une éruption solaire de niveau moyen, observée en mars 2022 par l'Observatoire de la dynamique solaire (SDO). Le SDO observe l'activité du Soleil, il montre donc les régions du Soleil où il y a de l'activité. Cette éruption est de classe M, ce qui signifie qu'elle est dix fois moins importante que les éruptions les plus intenses, c'est-à-dire les éruptions X. Les éruptions solaires sont à peine visibles à l'œil nu, d'où l'intérêt du SDO. L'image ici, est prise dans l'ultraviolet extrême qui a été colorée en rouge par le SDO, l'éruption apparaît dans la partie supérieure du disque solaire.

Caption: Questa immagine mostra il brillamento solare di medio livello osservato nel marzo 2022 dal Solar Dynamic Observatory (SDO). L'SDO osserva l'attività del Sole, perciò mostra le regioni del Sole in cui c'è attività. Un brillamento solare è un rapido lampo sulla superficie del Sole; questo brillamento in particolare è di classe M, il che significa che è un decimo delle dimensioni dei brillamenti più intensi, ovvero i brillamenti X. I brillamenti solari sono a malapena visibili a occhio nudo, quindi usiamo l'SDO per osservarli. L'immagine qui riportata, catturata in luce ultravioletta estrema che è stata colorata di rosso nell'SDO, il brillamento appare nella parte superiore del disco solare.
