Solar eruption – August 19, 2017

Scroll down to content

A new very active region is on the verge to expose itself. At the moment it is just over the horizon, on the solar limb. Luckily, I was imaging it just at the right moment, when the AR released a not so small eruption.

At one moment the eruption looked like the infinity sign:

And now the animation of the eruption, which shows the event compressed from one hour to about four seconds:

And the sequence of the event, both in grayscale, and color:
