For the 50th anniversary NASA has released some beautiful Panoramas pictures of Apollo missions.
The video, taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, shows a plasma eruption that swirls up like a tornado to a dizzying height of up to 93,206 miles (150,000 kilometers) above the solar surface.Solar Dynamics Observatory launched into space on February 11. On board is three devices, which are constantly facing the world and broadcast his image. According to solar astrophysicist C. Alex Young of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., its height is roughly between 10 to 12 Earths. The solar twister occurred on July 12 when an eruption of magnetic plasma, called a prominence, spiraled up from the sun in a graceful whirlwind, then split into four separate strands that twisted into a knot before fading away.
It was similar to the ephemeral whirlwind, which gradually broke up into 4 separate fragment and lasted just a few hours. Such manifestations of solar activity happen quite often. However, in this case the whole process affects the clarity and its shaping.
