On this photo, made with a dedicated solar telescope with an aperture of 15cm and a focal length of 1200mm, the colors during post-processing were selected in such unusual way to clearly shows the subtle structures of the Sun chromosphere - twisting active areas, tiny spicules or long filaments. The white color of the prominences visible on the edge perfectly contrasts with dark blue background, allowing to observe even tiny plasma structures trapped in the powerful magnetic field of our closest star.
