Scientists have discovered a new phenomenon on the sun: towering waves that race across its face tsunami-style.

The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory provided a tantalising glimpse of a solar wave about 12 years ago, but it took the three-dimensional view from NASA's STEREO solar probes to nail it.
