Incoming CME Class M7- An Anomaly Explained [HD]
Our sun has remained active over the past two weeks on a daily basis where we could enjoy not only to observe the sun and its activities but also enjoy the aurora borealis from the North Pole in Canada to as far South as Michigan, U.S.A
This is the sunspot region AR 1429 that has generated several major solar storms recently. The video covers nine days (Mar. 4 - 12, 2011inclusive). Notice how the spot continually changes as its magnetic fields realign themselves. The images are white light images called intensitygrams captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
I’ve also posted the original video clip of the anomaly showing a sphere with the coronal rain. At a deeper look it is apparent that it is an active detaching prominence from a tornado like or what we see here on earth water spouts with twisted filaments.
From another angle the coronal rain is clearly visible but the sphere seems to be absent replaced by a prominence with filaments.
