For English description from NASA, see below the video.


Din cauză că nu ne putem uita direct la el, pierdem mare parte din spectacolul oferit de Soare. Din fericire, specialiştii NASA studiază Soarele pentru noi, iar acum au făcut public un video care prezintă erupţia splendidă de vara trecută.

În ziua de 19 iulie 2012, pe Soare a avut loc o erupţie ce a provocat o ejecţie puternică de particule încărcate electric producând un fenomen cunoscut sub numele de ploaie coronală.

Plasma fierbinte din coroana solară s-a răcit şi s-a condensat de-a lungul câmpurilor magnetice din regiune. Câmpurile magnetice sunt invizibile dar plasma încărcată electric este forţată să se deplaseze de-a lungul liniilor.

Erupţiile solare pot fi foarte diferite. Unele vin doar cu un flux de particule încărcate electric, altele cu ejecţii majore de materiale solare iar altele cu structuri mobile complexe asociate cu schimbări ale liniilor câmpului magnetic la nivelul coroanei solare.

În timpul erupţiei din vara anului trecut, au avut loc toate cele trei tipuri de explozii. Pe parcursul zilei de 20 iulie 2012, plasma din coroană s-a răcit şi s-a condensat în jurul câmpurilor magnetice puternice.

Imaginile de mai jos au fost surprinse la fiecare 12 secunde cu ajutorul instrumentului NASA, Solar Dynamics Observatory’s Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA), fiecărei secunde din acest video corespunzându-i 6 minute în timp real.


Eruptive events on the sun can be wildly different. Some come just with a solar flare, some with an additional ejection of solar material called a coronal mass ejection (CME), and some with complex moving structures in association with changes in magnetic field lines that loop up into the sun’s atmosphere, the corona.

On July 19, 2012, an eruption occurred on the sun that produced all three. A moderately powerful solar flare exploded on the sun’s lower right hand limb, sending out light and radiation. Next came a CME, which shot off to the right out into space. And then, the sun treated viewers to one of its dazzling magnetic displays – a phenomenon known as coronal rain.

Over the course of the next day, hot plasma in the corona cooled and condensed along strong magnetic fields in the region. Magnetic fields, themselves, are invisible, but the charged plasma is forced to move along the lines, showing up brightly in the extreme ultraviolet wavelength of 304 Angstroms, which highlights material at a temperature of about 50,000 Kelvin. This plasma acts as a tracer, helping scientists watch the dance of magnetic fields on the sun, outlining the fields as it slowly falls back to the solar surface.

The footage in this video was collected by the Solar Dynamics Observatory’s AIA instrument. SDO collected one frame every 12 seconds, and the movie plays at 30 frames per second, so each second in this video corresponds to 6 minutes of real time. The video covers 12:30 a.m. EDT to 10:00 p.m. EDT on July 19, 2012.

In Awe of Creation – NASA | Massive Solar Flare March 6th – Eruptie Solara

Un exemplu de „semne in cer….”

This movie of the March 6, 2012 X5.4 flare was captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) in the 171 and 131 Angstrom wavelength. One of the most dramatic features is the way the entire surface of the sun seems to ripple with the force of the eruption. This movement comes from something called EIT waves – because they were first discovered with the Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT) on the Solar Heliospheric Observatory. Since SDO captures images every 12 seconds, it has been able to map the full evolution of these waves and confirm that they can travel across the full breadth of the sun. The waves move at over a million miles per hour, zipping from one side of the sun to the other in about an hour. The movie shows two distinct waves. The first seems to spread in all directions; the second is narrower, moving toward the southeast. Such waves are associated with, and perhaps trigger, fast coronal mass ejections, so it is likely that each one is connected to one of the two CMEs that erupted on March 6.

In awe of Creation – The spectacular Sun – from NASA

I know I have a few readers who do not believe God is the Creator of this Universe, like I do. But I think we can firmly agree that we are certainly in awe of the vastness and complexity of our Universe. For some of us there is no doubt who gets the credit for it- ALMIGHTY GOD. So, even if you don’t believe God made this Universe, join me in an awe-filled  look at the sun, the moon and the Universe. (Now that we got that explained-I am going to post NASA pictures on the blog from time to time. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do)

Magnetic Loops A’Crackling on the Sun

The latest amazing close-up shot of solar activity is available courtesy of Steele Hill and NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. Steele is a Goddard media specialist who sends out packages of sun images and videos that get displayed in hundreds of museums and science centers. In Steele’s own words:

“When a substantial active region rotated into view, it was a hot-bed of dynamic motion and loops (Mar. 21-22, 2011). As observed by Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) in extreme ultraviolet light, the region’s powerful magnetic forces tangled, broke apart and reconnected with a vengeance, even popping off a few flares. Very tight close-ups such as this one had not been possible until the SDO began operations just a year ago.”

Explanation: The sun was captured in 1973 throwing one of the largest eruptive prominences ever recorded.  The sun will never explode, and a solar flare will never destroy the earth.  The sun is made of mostly hydrogen and helium. The sun’s center is so hot that when hydrogen nuclei collide, they stick together and release energy – a process called nuclear fusion No one knows why the center of the sun emits so few neutrinos.
