NASA Staring at the Sun, the Graceful and Magnificent Eruptions…

Learning about the Sun and our relationship to it is of great importance to NASA, and all of us. The fact that from time to time incredible videos result from the science, that’s just a bonus.

Two of the most spectacular videos to come from all of this staring at the Sun capture the Sun at its explosive and fiery best. The Graceful Eruption and the Magnificent Eruption videos both capture massive CME events occurring on the surface of the sun, both of them spectacular.

Presented for your viewing pleasure are two of the best examples of CME action captured by the SDO satellite. Capturing the Sun as it sheds immense amounts of energy and matter. Sit back, relax and let the solar storm begin.
