The footage includes clouds of solar material hurled into space, loops hovering in the atmosphere and sunspots on the surface.






Captivating video has been released by NASA showing some of the most memorable moments of the Sun's activity in the last five years.

Highlights include clouds of solar material being hurled into space and loops hovering in the atmosphere, which is known as the corona.
There are also sunspots growing and shrinking on the sun's surface - and the four minutes of footage has been likened to ballet.

Isn't the CORONA the glow that surrounds the Moon and other Planets?

nope...the corona is the "atmosphere" that surounds the sun, a region of somewhat more rareified gasses that is at the limit of where the sun's gravity can hold onto those gasses....

The 'corona,' is a ridge of flesh demarcating where the head of the penis and the shaft join. FGS, try to keep it clean.

"Every bubble's passed its FIZZical!" yelped the Ernie Bilko-voiced Head Bubble in the cartoon ads for this knobbly-bottled orangeade. Very popular in the '70s. The idea of devouring an entire army of bubbles and then belching out their remains appealed to the juvenile mind.
