Eruptive events on the sun can be wildly different. Some come just with a solar flare, some with an additional ejection of solar material called a coronal mass ejection (CME), and some with complex moving structures in association with changes in magnetic field lines that loop up into the sun's atmosphere, the corona.

On July 19, 2012, an eruption occurred on the sun that produced all three. A moderately powerful solar flare exploded on the sun's lower right hand limb, sending out light and radiation. Next came a CME, which shot off to the right out into space. And then, the sun treated viewers to one of its dazzling magnetic displays -- a phenomenon known as coronal rain.

Over the course of the next day, hot plasma in the corona cooled and condensed along strong magnetic fields in the region. Magnetic fields, themselves, are invisible, but the charged plasma is forced to move along the lines, showing up brightly in the extreme ultraviolet wavelength of 304 Angstroms, which highlights material at a temperature of about 50,000 Kelvin. This plasma acts as a tracer, helping scientists watch the dance of magnetic fields on the sun, outlining the fields as it slowly falls back to the solar surface.

The footage in this video was collected by the Solar Dynamics Observatory's AIA instrument. SDO collected one frame every 12 seconds, and the movie plays at 30 frames per second, so each second in this video corresponds to 6 minutes of real time. The video covers 12:30 a.m. EDT to 10:00 p.m. EDT on July 19, 2012.

People actually think this is real. this is what 57 million dollars a day pays for, very good graphic artists.

The sun be like.... NO NOMNOMNOM. I shall eat everything

Is it real..?

I am curious to know how it happens.

That's all the fireworks I need for today (July 4th), Thx Sun, for literally everything.

this is scary to me

God is wonderful !!!
Adding milk or fresh cream and fresh milk ice cream to Volcano Lava Fire, makes a good custard, pie and different foods.

Buffet Meal. All natural hot from Earth. Who says we can't settle that fire with milk or cream? Yes, we can. We must enjoy our food.

Add natural yogurt or fresh milk or fresh natural cream to hot firy Volcano Lava curry, and it will taste good. Don't forget your spices.

How long would this be in real time?

It's depressing to realize that without this ball of fire we wouldn't be alive.

That's actually terrifying

why do those rays go from the surface and travel back into the sun? whats pushing them back?

10 Earth Like Planets - Our Next Homes [2018]
Several exoplanets already pretend to be habitable.One day the earth will be destroyed completely! Where will you go? How will you survive? Well, don't worry! Because we humans found some new Earth-like planets as a backup plan, where we can live.
