Maybe this gigantic violet colored structure is like a magnetic field,but also like the aurora borealis seen hear on earth,only on a super massive scale and size? An aurora is caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere and the charged particles originate in the magnetosphere...
