Large Coronal Hole Near the Sunís North Pole


www.nasa.gov said:

The European Space Agency/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO, captured this image of a gigantic coronal hole hovering over the sunís north pole on July 18, 2013, at 9:06 a.m. EDT. Coronal holes are dark, low density regions of the sunís outermost atmosphere, the corona. They contain little solar material, have lower temperatures, and therefore, appear much darker than their surroundings.

  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A giant "hole" covering nearly a quarter of the Sun's atmospheric surface has been caught on camera by a Nasa telescope.

The darker section at the top of the Sun in the above video is a coronal hole - part of the star's atmosphere where its magnetic field bursts open and spurts streams of solar material out into space.

It appears as a dark "hole" on the surface of the sun because the process makes its atmosphere cooler and less dense than those around it.

Uh, can I presume that this is not going to do something weird, like, you know, blow-up the sun or fry the Earth?

I hope not.  The author doesn't seem to think it is anything unusual, but it makes me nervous about the sun going out like a snuffed birthday candle.

How is something happening on the earth effecting the sun?  Global warming is in regard to our globe... I'm thinking you're trying to be facetious?

So is stars falling from the sky, lets keep it to hard science.

Huffington post posted an article explaining that the holes happen at times of activity within the sun, perhaps the magnetic flip has something to do with it
