Solar flare makes the sun jump. I think it's cool.

This is probably the most beautiful sight and colors tones used to show a solar flare eruption. Least I think it is anyway. But right before it erupts, I believe it 's at the 0:10 mark, the Sun actually moves and jumps. You would think that with how big the Sun is, that a solar flare wouldn't affect the Sun all that much.

I don't know just weird.

Anyone find anything interesting on Helioviewer lately?

The Aliens and the Sun have been pretty quiet lately.

Dear Manhater,

It is indeed lovely. I do not believe the Sun jumped, I think it is more likely that the pulse from the sun made the camera jump. At least something to consider and it is good to see you thinking about things other than your grade. Peace.

The sun did not "jump".

The fox did not jump over the moon.

It kind of jumped


Reminds me of the aurora lights.

I think it's much more likely that the movement was done by the camera on the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), not the Sun.

Definitely camera was bumped or hit by something. Could have been the aliens recording it. Just did some research, largest sunspot viewed was 1947. Sunspots are solar flares only viewed differently by different equipment. The sun spot was earlier technology so now we get to see the actual flare. This is my understanding of the technology which is not much so anyone feel free to correct any errors.

More info: NASA Link

Here is a graph showing the great sunspot of 1947. I say sunspot but i suppose now we would call it a flare.

Um, no. You need sunspots to produce flares, but you can have non-Complex sunspots without flares. The two terms are not at all interchangeable.

The movement may have looked like a "bump", as if a camera person gets hit while making a video...

HOWEVER this is not a traditional "video", but instead is a time-lapse made up of a bunch of still pictures. These pictures were taken over a span of 2 weeks, so the "bump" was actually just one or two of those still pictures in which the camera/SDO spacecraft moved into a slightly different position than the other still images.

It could be just a simple and relatively slow spacecraft movement instead of a bump. If the spacecraft was bumped by something, it probably would have done damage.

Ah OK, that makes more sense, some sort of glitch.
