This morning, at 08:55 UT, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) detected a C3-class flare erupt inside a sunspot cluster. 100,000 kilometers away, deep within the solar atmosphere (the corona), an extended magnetic field filled with cool plasma forming a dark ribbon across the face of the sun (a feature known as a “filament”) erupted at the exact same time.
It seems very likely that both events were connected after a powerful shock wave produced by the flare destabilized the filament, causing the eruption.
A second solar observatory, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), then spotted a huge coronal mass ejection (CME) blast into space, straight in the direction of Earth. Solar physicists have calculated that this magnetic bubble filled with energetic particles should hit Earth on August 3, so look out for some intense aurorae, a solar storm is on its way…

Love your post very much.And how many means do you know about 'NY',you may know the New York,anything else?! my web will give you answer.It will show you many many acronyms in some feilds,such as computers,chattings,economics, Astronomy and so on.Please give us your advices.http://www.acronymlist.org/
Jaundice is characterized by yellowing of the skin and the sclera or whites of the eyes. It is not a disease but only a sign to many other different diseases. Jaundice is caused by the high level of chemical bilirubin in the blood. Depending on the level of the chemical, the yellow pigmentation of the skin and the sclera may vary. When it is too high, it could appear as brown and not yellow. http://www.jaundicesymptoms.net
@ stevensmith,Er… dude, did I miss something here? WTF has jaundice got to do with this article about “Complex Magnetic Eruption” from the Sun?
A wheat allergy is produced it suddenly reacs while a wheat intolerance that does not. The symptoms of wheat intolerance may seem to be very less obvious and many people confuse it with something else or dismiss them as a normal part of our life.

Wow, amazing! Thanks for sharing! that's pretty beautiful and stunning! I love so so much! If you know more imformation please click http://wgbbearing.com Good luck!
Wow – Awesome looking! I love pictures like this. Very beautiful Produktfotografie of the sun!
the size of eruption was really amazing, we are most probably doom if that happen on earth.
The amount of energy released from the sun is enormous, very interesting, the sun’s solar storms full of energy. The sun really amazing.
I think so good thank you for sharing
Using solar power to heat your water is one of the most practical and cost effective ways to harness energy from the sun. Solar thermal systems absorb the sun’s heat and use it to heat your residence’s own hot water needs.
I am really amazed from your post. Useful information glad to see this page.

Great post! I love your blog! Here is a link to a website I found that has lots of information on it
http://www.ufomystery2012.com it talks about ufo’s, crop circles, planet x, the new world order, and has a ton of information on 2012 too.
Great , I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related information ended up being truly easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, web site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task.
Thanks for you help. The best part of your wonderfully helpful blog is that you explain things clearly. Your blog is a special gem in a field of stones.
Eruption looks just AWESOME!!!!
Great blog about astronomy and space exploration. Keep up the great work! = D
Great site about space, astronomy etc
From an EXCELLENT Space Blog!
Using its High Definition Television (HDTV) camera, the Japanese lunar probe Kaguya captured an astounding video of the Earth slowly rising above the lunar horizon. The video was actually released at the start of this month, but it has only just come to my attention. The video was recorded on September 30th, as the probe orbited 100 km above the Moon. Stunning.
Why can’t I give this a rating? Anyway, it would have been a thumbs-up for being interesting. But, to me, this suggests the “crop circle” was made by clever and mischievous PEOPLE – maybe maths students? Not by aliens!
It’s a great looking site, carefully written accessible astrophysics. Check out what NASA is doing and the buzz about LHC Safety.
