This image shows a sun flare erupting off the sun. A solar flare is a sudden flash of brightness over the Sun's surface. A solar flare ejects electrons, ions, and atoms through the corona of the sun outwards. Solar flares are not visible by the naked eye but can only be seen with special science tools. Solar flares are powered by the sudden release of magnetic energy stored in the corona. When they reach Earth-which could take a day-the waves interrupt long-range radio communications.

There’s also a video. It’s beautiful and terrifying. mothernaturenetwork: Photo of the day: Stunning coronal mass ejection erupts from SunA long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun’s corona erupts out into space on Aug. 31. Traveling at over 900 miles per second, the coronal mass ejection did not travel directly toward Earth, but it did connect with Earth’s magnetosphere, causing auroras to appear in the night sky on Sept. 3.
From Around the Solar System, one of 33 photos. On August 31, 2012, a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun’s atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled at over 900 miles per second. The CME did not travel directly toward Earth, but did connect with Earth’s magnetic environment, or magnetosphere, causing aurora to appear on the night of Monday, September 3. (NASA/GSFC/SDO)

The 'grand design' spiral galaxy, BX442, dates back roughly 10.7 billion years
Hubble has spotted an ancient galaxy that shouldn't exist called BX442. This galaxy is so large, so fully-formed, astronomers say it shouldn't exist at all. It's called a "grand-design" spiral galaxy, and unlike most galaxies of its kind, this one is old. Like, really, really old. According to a new study conducted by researchers using NASA's Hubble Telescope, it dates back roughly 10.7-billion years — and that makes it the most ancient spiral galaxy we've ever discovered.
From io9-- Hubble has spotted an ancient galaxy that astronomers didn't expect to exist... and it's gorgeous. This is the sort of thing that makes me believe in God.

Eclipsed Moonlight Image Credit & Copyright: Javier Algarra Explanation: A celestial prelude to today's solstice, the June 15 total lunar eclipse was one of the longest in recent years. It was also one of the darkest, but not completely dark. Even during totality, a somber, red lunar disk could be seen in the starry night sky, reflecting reddened light falling on to its surface. Seen from a lunar perspective, the ruddy illumination is from all the sunsets and sunrises around the edges of a silhouetted Earth. In this sharp portrait of the eclipsed Moon from Granada, Spain, the Moon's edge reflects a bluish tinge as well as it emerges from Earth's umbral shadow. The bluer light is still filtered through Earth's atmosphere, but originates in rays of sunlight passing through layers high in the upper stratosphere. That light is colored by ozone that absorbs red light and transmits bluer hues.
We have work to do, you guys.

Gemini came before Apollo, and although it never got the attention that some believe it deserved, the Gemini missions brought back some of the most compelling images captured in space. Now, those images are available courtesy of NASA and a team of researchers at Arizona State University. You can enjoy the entire collection online at ASU’s March to the Moon gallery,

Io's Pele Hemisphere After Pillan Changes. "In this enhanced color composite, deposits of sulfur dioxide frost appear in white and grey hues while yellowish and brownish hues are probably due to other sulfurous materials. Bright red materials, such as the prominent ring surrounding Pele, and "black" spots with low brightness mark areas of recent volcanic activity and are usually associated with high temperatures and surface changes."

Jupiters moon Io is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. The black areas are deposits of recent volcanic activity. The yellow-brown color marks the sulfurous deposits that blanket most of Io. The red areas are covered by sulfurous deposits that are still warm from recent eruption.

April 16, 2012 solar flare
An incredibly stunning solar flare erupted from the sun’s surface, throwing charged particles and searing plasma millions of miles out into space on Apr. 16. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured data from the flare. The blast was not directed at the Earth and is unlikely to hit any of the planets in our solar system.

Filigree and Shadow - Wispy tendrils of hot dust and gas glow brightly in this ultraviolet image of the Cygnus Loop Nebula, taken by NASA’s Galaxy Evolution Explorer. The nebula lies about 1,500 light-years away, and is a supernova remnant, left over from a massive stellar explosion that occurred 5,000-8,000 years ago. The Cygnus Loop extends more than three times the size of the full moon in the night sky, and is tucked next to one of the 'swan’s wings' in the constellation of Cygnus.

NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer shows the hot dust and gas glowing brightly in an ultraviolet image of the Cygnus Loop Nebula. The nebula lies about 1,500 light years away and represents a supernova remnant from an exploded star some 5,000-8,000 years ago. That supernova could have been seen clearly from Earth with the naked eye.
