Abstract: We review briefly the observational understanding of emergence of flux in both the quiet Sun and active regions in the light of first results from the joint Japan/US/UK Hinode mission. That spacecraft is now providing us with our first continuous, high resolution measurements of the photospheric vector magnetic field, along with high resolution observations of the thermal and dynamic properties of the chromosphere and corona. This review is intended to present a few very early results and to highlight the potential for discovery offered by this extraordinary new mission. The discovery of ubiquitous horizontal magnetic flux in the quiet internetwork regions is presented.
