The technology availible to us is incredible. To be able to photograph eruptions on the sun as they happen is astonishing. The image above shows the explosion at different temperatures and wavelengths.
The video above was captured from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory last Friday. The explosion you see sent a wave of solar plasma toward the earth at 900 miles per second.
Nature is amazing, going to the Territories to see the auroras may be my next big trip.
