Coronal mass ejection


I caught a huge eruption on the surface of the sun while taking stills.This explains why the movie is so jumpy…lol.Take a look at the 2 O’clock area (dark spot is there too) and look very closely and you will see material being blown off into space. I apologize for the quality but,remember it is from stills and I had not planned on making a movie 🙂

This video was shot on May 5th .

This according to http://www.spaceweather.com

CINCO DE MAYO BLAST: With May 5th winding down, magnetic fields on the sun wound up and erupted, producing a bright coronal mass ejection (CME).

The eruption came from a spotless region near the sun’s southwestern limb.

The billion-ton cloud is not heading directly for Earth, although it could deliver a glancing blow to our planet’s magnetic field on or about May 8th.
