Holiday Lights on the Sun: Imagery of a Solar Flare The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at p. EST on Dec. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured an image of the event.
astronomicalwonders: “Solar Eruptions - A Coronal Mass Ejection The swirling inner layers of our sun cause charged particles to generate magnetic fields. As charges accumulate on the surface, magnetic.
Magnetic fields on the sun's northeastern limb erupted around UT on April producing one of the most visually-spectacular explosions in years. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the blast at extreme ultraviolet wavelengths
An incredibly stunning solar flare erupted from the sun's surface throwing charged particles and searing plasma millions of miles out into space. The blast was not directed at the earth and it is unlikely to hit any of the planets in our solar system.
Monster ProminenceCredit: NASA/SDONASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured this view of a powerful Class solar flare on Feb. 2011 during a sun storm. NASA scientists called the display a "monster prominence" that kicked up a huge plasma wave.
