3 Below the photosphere is the _____.
4 _____: The Solar Terrestial Relations Observatory, two orbiting satellites that give a constant three-dimensional view of solar activity.
5 Some _____ and radar detectors track the Sun's influence predict space weather events.
6 _____: The Solar Heliospheric Observatory, which focuses on the Sun's upper layers and corona.
9 The _____ is the layer beneath the convective zone and is a very descriptive name because this region truly does radiate heat rom the center of the Sun up to the convective zone.
11 The _____ is the period in a sunspot cycle when they taper off over five years until there are few sunspots.
12 The Sun is essentially a big sphere of _____.
13 The Global Oscillations Network Group (GONG) focuses on sound waves moving through the Sun, a science called _____.
14 _____ is a constantly blowing stream of charged particles which extends out about 100 astronomical units (a hundred times the distance between Earth and the Sun) and creates a huge bubble that surrounds the solar system.
15 Beneath the chromosphere is the _____, where temperatures range from 4,226 degrees Celcius to 5,700 degrees Celcius.
17 The second layer of the Sun's atmosphere, the _____, is a thin, reddish-hued layer of gases, and its temperature changes from 3,500 degrees Celcius at the base to about 34,726 degrees Celcius where it transitions up to the corona.

8 Sunspots are related to solar activity, particularly in bright outbursts called _____.

14 Coronal mass ejections occur most often during the period of maximum solar activity and cause a pohenomenon called _____, which occurs throughout the solar system.
16 The study of the physics of the Sun is called _____ and is a very active area of research.
19 The _____ is a star and the biggest source of heat and light in our solar system; without it, life might not exist, and that makes it very important to us.
21 _____ is energized gas.
22 _____ telescopes measure all aspects of the Sun's surface and atmosphere.
23 _____ are areas threaded with magnetic fields and look dark because they are cooler than the surrounding regions.
