Coronal Mass Ejection on May 17, 2013

This video shows the coronal mass ejection (CME) that occurred on May 17, 2013 at 5:24 a.m. EDT. This is a combination of two satellite views, showing both the sun and its atmosphere, the corona. The center image shows the sun in UV light, as captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO. The red and larger blue area are further out in the sun's corona as seen by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO. The CME appears and expands from the center left. The white dot on the far left is the planet Mars.

Let's see what the weekend brings. 1748 is pretty much earth faceing now. Let the good times roll.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "
