    Sunspots are temporary phenomena on the photosphere of the Sun that appear visibly as dark spots compared to surrounding regions. They are caused by intense magnetic activity, which inhibits convection by an effect comparable to the eddy current brake, forming areas of reduced surface temperature.

    Yes the star and sun have magnetic field around them and because of sun's magnetic field the planets in solar system revolve around the sun
