Top panel: different transit trajectories of the prototype planet Kepler-11 on the Sun at the representative wavelength band of [7620–7640] Å and for four orbital inclination angles inc = [ 90.85, 90.65, 90.45, and 90.25]° (from top to bottom transit). An inclination angle of 90° corresponds to a planet crossing at the stellar center (Fig. 8). Central panel: transit light curves with colored shade denoting highest and lowest values of 42 different synthetic images to account for granulation changes during the transit. Blue corresponds to inc = 90.85°, green to 90.65°, yellow to 90.45°, and red to 90.25°.
