And it's several zillion times dimmer, by the time it reaches the Earth (the inverse-square law is a real thing, unlike a lot of the guff spoken by astronomers).

Like I said, don't make the mistake of thinking that it's a separate thing from the photosphere; it is simply the particles of photosphere as they move further out, and the line of definition that people have pencilled in between the two is entirely arbitrary, based on how much the moon occludes during an eclipse (which itself is different, every time, sometimes by by thousands of miles -- that's a Hell of a thick pencil).

Hot stuff comes out from the Sun.  There ain't no lines of definition, that far out.
