7/28/2004: Solar filament

This was an Astro Pic of the Day a few days ago. I can't get enough of images the sun doing crazy things. This solar filament is, like the solar promience we had a while back, a kind of gaseous solar eruption.

The APOD says "The filament, although small compared to the overall size of the Sun, measures over 100,000 kilometers in height, so that the entire Earth could easily fit into its outstretched arms." I don't know whether that's true, just reporting what they say in the caption.

Beware the body thetans!

I can't photoshop the Earth into the Sun picture, so I'll have to settle for Hubbard.

I'm amazed noone has actually said it looks exactly like a demon rising and looking straight at you. Freaks me out.

I've heard recently that there is a massive sunspot forming at the moment and there is a growing fear of a massive solareruption soon. Good luck if you use sat net connections. Or your phone gets routed over them, or you use a news service that uses them hell we're all screwed.

Well, if you want more impressive images from the TRACE satellite, just go to this link link, there are plenty and you can choose.

Other nice images are taken from SoHO, here. Check the Gallery section.

You can find movies in both.

What about this famous one? Link

What you see is the gas outlining the magnetic field lines. Like the iron filings and the magnet in an experiment at school.
School? Sorry, I stop here.

Great picture, there definitely are some strange things happening up there.

If NASA, ESA, et al want more funding, all they need to do is make more movies like <a href="">this</a>. Link goes directly to the movie from panenka's link.

Just friggen amazing.
