Filament Eruption & Dancing Plasma

May 21, 2011

In the early hours of May 17, 2011 a beautiful filament erupted from the Sun and sent a cloud of plasma into space. This Coronal Mass Ejection was not aimed at Earth but most likely will interact with Earth’s magnetic field two days later, creating some of these beautiful auroras. credit: NASA
