Currently, our Sun is going through the Solar Minimum, a point/phase in its 11-year long solar cycle when the surface activities slow down to a minimum and as a result no sunspots or solar flares pop up on its surface. This gives it the appearance of a giant smooth orange billiard ball. via /r/spaceporn
