The chromosphere is entirely composed of spicules.

Should this sentence be removed - as far as I can tell it isn't accurate.


Is the long account of computer games where the word "spicule" is used really relevant? (talk) 17:16, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

The use of the term "spicule" in video games is not related to the phenomenon that occurs in the chromosphere. I'll remove it since it is the use of the same term and does not have any relevance to the phenomenon in the chromosphere. As a placeholder, the text I removed is: "In the video game Star Ocean 2, there is a famous attack skill called "Spicule" done by Decus (or Michael in the PlayStation Portable version), one of the evil Ten Wise Men villains. He shoots a large pillar of fire upwards, and then yells a random taunt before coming down and bombarding the area with an explosion of fire, damaging the entire party immensely. In the video game Bokosuka Wars, there is an enemy named the "Spicule Man" who attacks the player using horizontal columns of fire." This would be much more relevant in articles on each of those video games. Spacehippy (talk) 17:04, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
