I swear, why don’t I get a hold of these things sooner?
This time, I almost missed a very cool simulation of a sunspot, which is pretty and an amazing accomplishment. According to the badastronomer, it is an amazing accomplishment because magnetic fields are really complex, and so modeling is difficult. Heck, I find electiricity and magnetism of undergrad level complex enough. Some of you ask, what does magnetism have to do with sunspot? Well, tangled magnetic fields from the sun causes sunspot. And it is linked to various violent activities on the sun, like flares and huge outbursts of particles called coronal mass ejection. Anyways, here are the very cool pics:
Plus, there are other pics and videos here.
