In Las Fotos de los Lectores de La Vanguardia we can admire how the sun rises just crowning the Cabrera sanctuary and creating a mirage.
In addition, the sun, as it rises over the horizon, shows us its large sunspots, especially the one on the right, it is the gigantic AR3310. We can appreciate it better in this accelerated video.
Cabrera belongs to the municipality of l'Esquirol. It is a place highly appreciated by hikers. It is located in Collsacabra, Osona region.
A sunspot is a region of the sun that has a lower temperature than its surroundings and with intense magnetic activity. It consists of a dark central region, called the "umbra," surrounded by a lighter "penumbra."
A single spot can measure up to 12,000 km (almost as large as the diameter of the Earth), but a group of spots can reach 120,000 km in size or more.
