The Most Amazing Solar Eruption, Ever
Space and the solar system is fascinating, evidenced by the amazing NASA images of a solar eruption below.
So astonishing and special that NASA titled their image “Magnificent CME Erupts on the Sun with Earth to Scale.” And in private one of their engineers told me “AMAZING STUFF!” So yes, they are in awe too.
The eruption was recorded on August 31, 2012: “a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun’s atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36PM EDT. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled at over 900 miles per second.”
