Hi Everyone, i found this pretty cool article on something that happened On December 6, 2010




Update 4:25 p.m. EST: The mega-filament collapsed in a gorgeous cascade of hot plasma between noon and 2 p.m. EST. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a beautiful movie of the eruption (above). The explosion does not appear to be aimed at Earth, so we shouldn’t expect any magnetic storms or satellite troubles.


Still a very beautiful event, i love watching the sun flare and whatnot..
hope you guys enjoy this
