The "photo" image shown below was posted today on Facebook by Fifth Star Labs. It shows the accumulation of one year's worth of solar activity in one photo image.
So, I see that this solar activity which I assume to be sun spots, solar flairs, CME sources, and other magnetic storm phenomena appear in a belt on both sides of the equatorial plane of the Sun. Now, I assume that all of this activity is rooted in magnetic field disturbances or activity so there must be something about the magnetic field shape, position, or whatever causing this. Maybe. I know very little about the magnetic field of the Sun.
So, is there a good explanation for this activity being within this band and not including the "polar" regions (and, here I am assuming those are polar regions of a rotating sphere, I am not even sure of that).
