The American National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)'s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) recorded an explosion in the Sun's plasma atmosphere (corona) at thousands of degrees on September 29. A canyon of fire, about 321 thousand kilometers long, formed under the magnetic rain left behind by the material rising into space. The incandescent moving canyon was seen to extend and spread in the same direction as the solar material released by the explosion.
Scientists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, USA, obtained images of this incredible event on the Sun using the data sent by SDO and published it yesterday.
The Sun, one of the approximately 200 billion known stars in the Milky Way galaxy, is actually composed of a structure called plasma, not fire. Gases and magnetic fields are formed as a result of the evaporation of extremely hot particles. These hot gases emit radiation in the form of heat and light to its surroundings.
In the light of the data obtained by SDO, scientists are trying to better understand the movements of the Sun and its effects on the Earth. Launched into space in February 2010, the SDO spacecraft is planned to be used in NASA's solar research for 5 years.
