No, Coronal Cavities are Not Alien Spaceships Refeuling

5 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Back in 2012, the Solar Dynamic Observatory recorded one of our star's many burps, but this one was different. This one was symmetrical, and an optical illusion, and spawned stories of a alien ship four times the size of the Earth refuelling. Read more...

Watch this spectacular NASA video of a 'graceful' solar flare

Even a molten ball of gas has its moments of elegance. Last week, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory caught a solar flare on video, and the agency's description of the sun's swirling eruption as "graceful" isn't hyperbole. Scientists will study this tape to gain insight on what leads to solar flares, a phenomenon not entirely understood. Show More Summary
