The Corona

At A Glance:

  • Outside the chromosphere, expands far out into space
  • As the Corona Expands Outward Into Space It Is Called The 'Solar Wind'

In Depth:

The corona is even less dense than the chromosphere. It expands outward into space, becoming less dense and cooler as it expands. In our solar system, this expansion is called the 'solar wind', and has effects on the entire solar system, including the earth.
