Sun Shoots Out 2 Coronal Mass Ejections [2]
Image credit: ESA, NASA/SOHO

Uploader comment: The second of two coronal mass ejections (CMEs) on January 23, 2013, is seen erupting in the top of the picture, away from the sun, which is obscured by the disk in the center. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory captured this image, called a coronagraph: the bright light of the sun itself is blocked to provide a better view of the sun's atmosphere, the corona.
