These unbelievable new images are from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.
You guys need to check this out in 1080p,Just incredible.I have never seen such detail of Coronal Mass Ejection.The amount of energy ejected into space and seems to get sucked back into core of the sun.
Stunning.

Awesome. This one is linked off of yours. Equally amazing.

Breathtaking is the word for it. I like how it's exploding stuff outwards then sucking back in again. Almost like it's breathing. It's definitely alive.

I like the music too.

Alive is a good description, no wonder the sun was worshiped as a God.
I feel privileged to be alive at a time to witness such amazing technology.

Is that a sentence? I don't think so, I'm not sure what you were trying to say.

But the amount of energy in that explosion could be as much as 1000 trillion bombs the size of the one at Hiroshima, or more, possibly a lot more.

One thing the video doesn't say, is the timescale. It looks like the time scale is probably compressed, but I don't know by how much. I suspect it takes a lot longer than is shown in the video for that event to occur in real time, but since I didn't see it live I can't say for sure.

I'm explaining what I see.
If you can't understand that's your problem I don't need your smart azz grammar comment.

This was certainly among the largest prominence eruptions seen by either the STEREO or SOHO missions. The length of the prominence appears to stretch almost halfway across the sun, about 500,000 miles. Prominences are cooler clouds of plasma that hover above the Sun’s surface, tethered by magnetic forces. They are notoriously unstable and commonly erupt as this one did in a dramatic fashion. The video clip shows about 19 hours of activity.


From the STEREO site.
