The complex distribution and mixing of magnetic polarities (here displayed as yellow and blue) form a "magnetic carpet" over the entire Sun (upper right panel). The upper left panel shows the EUV emission taken simultaneously by CDS from plasma at the temperature of 250 000 K. The lower panel shows an overlay of the two images. Sequences of such images show that many of the transition region brightenings correspond to changes in the magnetic field.
