Trapped within the corona that surrounds the Sun
The majority of the Solar Cosmic Rays are trapped within the corona that surrounds the Sun like a dense invisible blanket of plasma. Only a tiny portion of the Sun's corona is ever seen in visible light, which in this case becomes visible during the total eclipse of the Sun by the moon standing in front of it. That the vastly larger solar corona is highly efficient in trapping the solar cosmic rays, becomes evident when holes form in the corona.
