Solar dynamics
The 90-minute solar flare, known as a "prominence", is not the largest eruption from the Sun in recent weeks, but is a further indication that our local star is awakening from a rather quiet few years. This image and the video shown below were produced from detection of extreme ultraviolet radiation. Credit: NASA SDO/video courtesy of the BBC.
