On August 31, 2012 the Sun threw a major tantrum. It started with a vast arc of material towering over its surface, a stream of plasma flowing between two sunspots. Sometimes these collapse back down to the Sun’s surface, but this one exploded, blasting hundreds of millions of tons of material out into space.    SDO captured this ridiculously awesome picture of the arc just before it erupted!

Solar flare on January 23rd, 2012.

Solar flare on January This is why I love science. But most importantly, it kind of looks like a giant space monster eating a planet.

Milky Way. Every star we see in the sky is part of the Milky Way, but a brighter center exists some light-years away. The Milky Way is about light-years in diameter and contains 200 to 400 billion stars.

Our Sun... its relatively small, but it is still a superStar!

Solar Flare Effects The degree of Solar flare effects depend on the strength of the flare and if strong enough, the solar impact can effect everything from the earths magnetic field, triggering natural disasters, to impacting individual brian activity.

Round the Bend (solar flare)

The Sun erupted with a good-sized solar flare on its far-side beyond the view of Solar Dynamics Observatory, but the resulting strands of particle clouds as seen in extreme ultraviolet light still made for quite a show that lasted about three hours (Jan.

I want to make this into a painting! - The surface of the sun as observed by the Transition Region and Coronal Explorer (TRACE) in high temporal and spatial resolution.
