Solar eruption caught on video

1 June 2014

At http://phys.org/news/2014-05-nasa-iris-gigantic-eruption-solar.html … the NASA IRIS instrument with the mission of observing the surface of the Sun has managed to catch a CME in the act of erupting – and the video at this sight illustrates the sheer power and might of the event. Recommended viewing. It was all down to careful manipulation and calculation by the NASA team in charge of IRIS – and they deserve the plaudits.
