Title: Solar sphere viewed through the Skylab solar physics experiment
Description:
The solar sphere viewed through the Skylab solar physics experiment (S082) 
Extreme Ultraviolet Spectroheliographis seen in this photographic 
reproduction taken from a color television transmission made by a TV camera 
aboard the Skylab space station in Earth orbit. The solar chromosphere and 
lower corona are much hotter than the surface of the Sun characterized by
the  white light emissions. This image was recorded during the huge solar 
prominence which occurred on August 21, 1973.
