NewsMobile fact-checked the picture and found that the viral picture is morphed.
When we put the image through Reverse Image Search, we found the picture on the website ‘Fine Art America‘, clicked by Guenzel’s profile, a photographer based out of the United States of America.
We also found the picture on Guenzel’s Twitter handle, published on January 13. He mentions that the picture is a software processes image of the solar chromosphere.
This heavily software-processed image of the solar chromosphere reveals the complex nature of the magnetic field within our star.

Thanks for the share. I am the original content creator.
