"When a rather large-sized (M 3.6 class) flare occurred near the edge of the Sun, it blew out a gorgeous, waving mass of erupting plasma that swirled and twisted over a 90-minute period (Feb. 24, 2011). This event was captured . . . by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft." [1032 x 1500] via /r/spaceporn
