This is an halpha wavelength actual image of the Sun taken through my Lunt LS100mm Telescope. I hope you will forgive my artistic license in enlarging it a bit to show what a SUnrise might look like during our Sun’s Red Giant stage in a few billion years..
This is from a collection of photos taken through my nonprofit Solar Astronomy Outreach Program here in Atlanta www.charliebates.org
