    Active Sun, artwork. The Sun is a huge ball of hydrogen gas, ionised into a plasma by the immense temperatures that are generated by nuclear fusion at its core. This fusion is ignited by the immense pressure generated by the Sun's mass. An active Sun is more likely to eject plasma from its surface, such as the large coronal loop at bottom right. The activity varies, peaking roughly every 11 years.
