A Solar Prominence Eruption from SDO
Image Credit & Copyright: NASA/Goddard/SDO AIA Team
Explanation: One of the most spectacular solar sights is an erupting prominence. In 2011, NASA's Sun-orbiting Solar Dynamic Observatory spacecraft imaged an impressively large prominence erupting from the surface. The dramatic explosion was captured in ultraviolet light in the featured time lapse video covering 90 minutes, where a new frame was taken every 24 seconds. The scale of the prominence is huge -- the entire Earth would easily fit under the flowing curtain of hot gas. A solar prominence is channeled and sometimes held above the Sun's surface by the Sun's magnetic field. A quiescent prominence typically lasts about a month, and may erupt in a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) expelling hot gas into the Solar System. The energy mechanism that creates a solar prominence is still a topic of research. After our Sun passes the current Solar Minimum, solar activity like eruptive prominences are expected to become more common over the next few years.

I've been wondering is that loose rocks and boulders on the surface, or is it loose rocks and boulders all the way down?

The quoted excerpt describes it as "likely a loose conglomerate rubble pile asteroid".

Cool. Having a time with my eyes these days.  >:(

Maybe more of a commercial than science, but still...

Absolutely fantastic! Among the best spent 10 minutes on Youtube in a long while!

I got a couple of minutes into it before I couldn’t take it any more.  It’s just a montage of space clips having nothing at all really to do with the eras they’re supposed to represent and missing out on all of the most important events at least in the early universe.  And its depiction of the Big Bang was insulting.

The opening credit sequence for "The Big Bang Theory" was better.

This is not time lapse. That would have been interesting. This wasn't.

Well it wasn't really a time lapse, but I enjoyed the visuals and I appreciate the idea behind it.
