How? "Tornadoes" on the sun aren't even conscious.

tornado.

I do not think it was the size of the earth though.


Well let's see. If we look at this picture:

And then overlay the NASA image at the correct scale:


I think it puts things in perspective.

Its amazing how many SOL/SUN characteristics can be seen on the near by planets. Outta box those would be interesting points of energy reminds me of vortex openings. SnF OP

Ya, it puts it in perspective
but if the overlay you made
is exact calculation of the size
difference, that is really AMAZING!

I still can not wrap my head around
it though thinking of a tornado of fire
the size of the earth. Try to wrap your brain
around it makes me feel sooooo small.

That explains all the images and videos lately. Figured this was all pretty recent judging from all the interest.

I guess you have seen the sun diving comets:

www.space.com...

I had a link to a video of one actually hitting the sun, it was just a tiny comet, compared to the sun, but still managed to get through.

So far the only image i found is one i had bookmarked but could have sworn there was a better one out there.

Why do you need a logical explanation for something that is already normal behaviour of the sun?
Why do some people like you have to turn anything into some conspiracy?

Based on the video i would say it is even quite a bit bigger than our tiny planet.

Mind boggling. Very very hard to fathom that the events are occuring at such a massive scale. The plumes are much much larger than earth thats for sure. I am still trying to imagine something as large as our earth whirling at that speed. All I can conclude is Massively Violent if we have to witness if possible with the most sophisticated camera.

This is amazing, both scientifically and aesthetically. I have never studied our sun, but I think I may begin at the beginning and try to learn about it. Your post inspired me - thanks!

That was exactly my first thought before I even scrolled down to see the replies
Jeezus that thing could swallow the earth!

Please do not include me in with your group of insignificant humans.

I am not insignificant.

What goes on inside me is spectacular, you just don't get to see/hear about it as often as the Sun.

As far as you know, the Sun only exists as a reflection of my inner mental and emotional states.

As far as you know, the sun makes contact with me for new ideas to keep you and NASA happy.

Solar tornadoes today and you have no idea what's on the agenda for tomorrow.

Maybe DNA Spiral flares????

Far from insignificant. Only to tiny minds.

Those pictures just broke my brain. What a sight that must be to see up close a wave of fire hundreds of times bigger than Earth.

You know I just thought of something. If Hell is an actual place where people are sent for doing bad things, basically the worst of the worst of humanity, shouldn't there be some sort of uprising? I mean, there's the devil and his fallen angels... but then you have billions of the worst of humanity. Satan is obviously outnumbered by the very worst humanity can produce and with a leader like Hitler to back them... He's either doing a damn good job or he's probably already been overthrown.

OT I know.

That's amazing!

It's almost as if an artificial energy force is focusing on a spot on our sun.

BTW, have you noticed the magnetic poles on our sun have not flipped?

The 11 year cycle arrived 3 days ago.

Our sun appears dormant. Hmmm....
