Nasa captures image of the sun ‘smiling’

Earlier this week, a Nasa satellite captured an image showing a happy face pattern on the sun. This image prompted NASA to say the sun was seen “smiling.”

The US space agency posted the image on Twitter on Wednesday. They wrote, “Today, Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory caught the sun ‘smiling.’ Seen in ultraviolet light, these dark patches on the sun are known as coronal holes and are regions where fast solar wind gushes out into space.”
