Textbook CME

I’m a big fan of SOHO, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory.  I’m completely envious of the job these guys have– watch the sun and report any anomalies, as well as collect data from satellites which monitor the sun.  I often sit around and watch movies of the different spectral ranges of the sun, looking at active areas.  I especially like the views we get from the solar observing satellites AHEAD and BEHIND, both of which are in Earth’s orbit but are either ahead of us or behind us.

AHEAD recently recorded a CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) that was absolutely stunning, so I wanted to share this with you.
