      Well from what we can see from earth and satellites we will say rippling of waves along the surface, but these waves are massive, bigger than the Earth even at times! Obviously for other stars we can’t see them so well, so we look at small changes in the variation of light to try and detect a quake after a large stellar flare. Luckily no on lives on the Sun to affected in such a way as people on the earth are after a large earthquake.
