SOHO Detects Two Solar Flares in 24 hours: The solar observatory SOHO NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) has captured the image of two solar flares over a period of ten hours between the past 5 to August 6, reportedly on the official website of the observatory .

Solar FlaresIn the picture you can see the green solar disk through a filter of extreme ultraviolet light, surrounded by two blue tongues, which correspond to the places where eruptions have occurred, one in the upper right one in the lower left half.

The eruptions are coronal mass ejections (CMEs), massive clouds of magnetized plasma ejected from the Sun’s atmosphere – better known as the crown – and launched into interplanetary space.

CMEs comprise million tons of gas that is released at a great distance from the Sun to several million kilometers per hour.

The videos were taken by large angle spectrometric corona-graph aboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).

This instrument is capable of taking images of the solar corona by blocking the light coming directly from the sun with a disk hider, creating an artificial eclipse within the instrument itself.
