A full disk view of the magnetic field with the large sunspot group.

This early sequence of images from the HMI imager is processed to reveal the magnetic field structure (magnetogram). White locations represent a positive magnetic field value (north polarity) while black represents a negative magnetic field value (south polarity). Grey is zero magnetic field.

The black and white region slightly above the center corresponds to a visible sunspot. Weaker magnetic regions are visible around the disk.
