The coronal rain

SunSun can be very different from each other. Some may be in the form of a solar flare. More often dumped material from the solar corona. Others are related to the formation of complex structures of moving and changing magnetic field lines.

July 19, 2012 Solar Dynamics Observatory SDO captured the event, which included all three processes. First, the sun appeared moderately powerful solar flare. After that there was a coronal mass ejection into space. Continue reading “The coronal rain”

Hole on the sun continues to rise

coronal holeCoronal hole in the southern hemisphere, the sun continue to rise and spewing streams of solar wind into space. This picture was taken by NASA satellites, the morning of 23 January.

Coronal holes are places in the solar impression, where the sun’s magnetic field opens and allows the solar wind to erupt into space. Solar wind stream flowing from this coronal hole is expected to reach Earth’s orbit on January 26-27. Will this crushing blow to our planet, scientists can not yet say.

Coronal cavities can affect solar emissions

Scientists are trying to better understand and learn how to better predict eruptions of solar material, so they drew my attention to the mysterious cavities in the outer atmosphere of the Sun, or the Crown.

These Coronal cavities are starting places for solar plasma clots with masses of several billion tons, called the koronal′nymi mass emissions (CME). Understanding the causes of CME is very important to scholars, as those of these eruptions, which are aimed directly at Earth, can damage the radio communication systems, satellite navigation, and power systems.
