Solar Flare Eruptions Photo from NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory

This is a composite image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory that shows a series of significant solar eruptions occurring over a three-day period in January, 2013. The photo has light wavelengths that are colored in red, green and blue to better outline the eruption dynamics. It would make a beautiful painting.

Nathalia Alzate, a solar scientist, posted her version of the solar events on Facebook. Read that post hereVia Colossal.
