Today's Science Video: NASA Watches Magnetic Arches Tower Over Sun's Surface

Today we're showing you what a NASA satellite observed on the sun!
In this short animation, NASA's SDO satellite saw magnetic arches over the sun's surface.
     Massive arches of solar material brighten and stream over an active region on the sun’s surface in this animation of imagery captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, on Sept. 29, 2016. Active regions are areas of particularly strong and complex magnetic fields. Charged solar particles travel along and illuminate the magnetic field lines above this region. The Earth is inset in the video for scale. SDO captured this video in a type of light that is invisible to human eyes, called extreme ultraviolet light. The imagery is colorized here in gold.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
