Spectacular pictures of Sun

CME from NASANASA shot these spectacular images of a coronal mass ejection (CME)  using its  SDO satellite-based solar observatory. Not much to do with personal technology but I thought they were outstanding enough to share.

CME from NASA

This beautiful prominence eruption shot off the east limb (left side) of the sun on Monday, April 16, 2012. Such eruptions are often associated with solar flares, and in this case an M1 class (medium-sized) flare did occur at the same time, though it was not aimed toward Earth. Take a look at this impressive video of the event.

CMEs are a fairly common occurrence and sometimes the resulting solar flare is aimed at earth producing spectaular Aurora Borealis as well as issues with satellite communications. Now I wonder if this one had anything to do with the record temperatures experienced in Easter Canada on Monday…hmmmmm 🙂
