Solar ballet on the SunJanuary 4, 2013 in Astronomy & Space / Space Exploration
A solar eruption gracefully rose up from the sun on December 31, 2012, twisting and turning.
Magnetic forces drove the flow of plasma, but without sufficient force to overcome the sun's gravity much of the plasma fell back into the sun.
