See 80,000 Miles of Plasma Bursting from the Sun's Surface
Check out this plasma bursting 80,000 miles off the Sun’s surface????The strange phenomenon is known as a solar prominence????which are clouds of plasma attached to the Sun’s surface by magnetic forces????The plasma is released when part of the Sun becomes unstable and gradually breaks away????Prominences are similar to solar flares, but flares are bursts of magnetic radiation????It’s not to be confused with a solar flare, which is a burst of magnetic radiation????Earth is pewny in comparison to this burst of plasma… it’s 10x Earth’s diameter ????NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory just captured the solar prominence????Scientists hope to find out more about events like these with the Parker Solar Probe????
