    the earth in comparison w/ a sun flare

    Solar flare dwarfs Earth. A filament of solar material erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT on Aug. 31, as captured in this image annotated by NASA and released Wednesday. The flare, known as a coronal mass ejection, traveled close enough to Earth to appear on the night skies on Sept. 3.

    "At the end of last month, a long standing solar filament suddenly erupted into space producing an energetic Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). The filament had been held up for days by the Sun's ever changing magnetic field and the timing of the eruption was unexpected. Watched closely by the Sun-orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory, the resulting explosion shot electrons and ions into the Solar System, some of which arrived at Earth three days later."

The Mineral Moon (NASA/JPL) - this mosaic of 53 images was recorded by the Jupiter-bound Galileo spacecraft as it passed near our own large natural satellite in 1992. The pictures were recorded through three spectral filters and combined in an exaggerated false-color scheme to explore the composition of the lunar surface as changes in mineral content produce subtle color differences in reflected light.
