The Sun As Art
Solar wind, Venus, Earth and Mars


This artist's impression shows how the solar wind shapes the magnetospheres of Venus (top), Earth (middle) and Mars (bottom). Unlike Venus and Mars, Earth has an internal magnetic field which makes its magnetosphere bigger. The lines coming out of the Sun symbolise the outward propagation of the solar wind. The planet’s distances are not shown to scale. Credits: ESA
