A dark spot on the photosphere of the sun
Energy from the star moves out through this zone
Most of the Sun's mass is in this layer
A brief burst of energy from the sun's photosphere
A fast-moving stream of particles thrown into space by solar flares
In this zone, cooler particles are pulled down by gravity

Hot bright areas, gives a grain look to the surface of the Sun

The star continues to shine dimly for billions of years as it slowly cools
The star may expand to 100 times its former size.
A star begins within a huge cloud of hydrogen, helium, and tiney particles of dust
After millions of years, the particles begin to squeeze together, attracted to each other by gravity. As it grows in mass, its temperature rises until it begins to glow
