Solar prominence Featured December Image

Solar prominence

Solar prominence. Ultraviolet SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) satellite image of a solar prominence (bottom left). The prominence is erupting from the chromosphere (orange), which lies above the Sun's visible surface. Prominences are dense clouds of plasma, or ionised gas, in the Sun's outer layer, the corona. They are typically at temperatures of 60, 000 Kelvin, much cooler than the several million Kelvin of the corona. Active regions (white) mark areas of high solar activity. The Sun's activity peaks every 10-11 years. Image produced by SOHO's Extreme Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (EIT)

A SOLAR ECLIPSE OCCURS ABOVE THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK TOWN OF LYNDHURST Featured December Image

A SOLAR ECLIPSE OCCURS ABOVE THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK TOWN OF LYNDHURST

Tourists watch the sun being blocked by the moon during a solar eclipse
in the Australian outback town of Lyndhurst, located around 700
kilometres (437 miles) north of Adelaide December 4, 2002. The town is
one of only four in Australia where the 26 second-long full eclipse of
the sun could be seen and occurred during celebrations for the Year of
the Outback. The shadow path of whats called totality, where the
diamond ring effect becomes visible, can be seen on a path that is
just 36 kilometres wide. REUTERS/David Gray
