This beautiful HD video, courtesy of NASA, captures the Sun’s August 31st Coronal Mass Ejection with multiple angles and techniques–the surface of the Sun can be quite a turbulent place.

When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Huh, folks, is there a version for grown-ups without stupid soundtrack?

    The sound track appears on the NASA webpage. So, go figure.

    I know the picture from the other side of the sun is a fake. It’s not dark

    I wish there would be an indication of the time scale. Anyone have any idea?

    If these CME continue we’re going to have serious problems here.

    That’s pretty cool stuff. We came a long way as far as cameras are concerned.
    I didn’t find the sound track annoying at all.
    As far as CME causing problems goes. Well let her rip. Should knock a few people off their high horse. Hahaha.
