IRIS sends us first photos ever of the Sun's Interface region.

This photo is a before and after obviously. This is from the new IRIS telescope that takes photos in a slim part of the spectrum, meaning it can photograph the tremendous energy that takes a 3,000 kelvin solar surface and turns it into energy bursting millions of degrees higher than anywhere else in the atmosphere. This is known as the interface region. We really don’t have a good understand as to why.

This is the first of hopefully many amazing photographs.
