AR 1476 is the largest sunspot to present itself in many months. It harbors energy for X type flares which are potentially major solar events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long lasting radiation storms. The upper image was taken at a higher 2.5x magnification through a white light Herschel wedge filter that reveals the deeper photosphere layer of the sun. The second image was captured at 1x magnification through a hydrogen alpha filter that reveals the chromosphere or outermost layer of the sun.
