Solar Magnetic Forces Unveiled

The correlation between the magnetic field structures observed near the surface of the Sun (revealed in the black and white magneto grams, seen through the HMI instrument onboard SDO) and the loops and active regions that are visible higher up in the corona (seen in extreme UV light through the AIA instrument onboard SDO) is striking and fun to see revealed.  credit:  NASA
