This epic CME occurred on Aug. 31, 2012, shooting out material from the sun into space at more than 900 miles per second.

Coronal Mass Ejection On August 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled at over 900 miles per second.

In this new view of the Andromeda galaxy from the Herschel space observatory, cool lanes of forming stars are revealed in the finest detail yet. Andromeda, also known as M31, is the nearest major galaxy to our own Milky Way at a distance of 2.5 million light-years, making it an ideal natural laboratory to study star formation and galaxy evolution.

Unbelievable Sun photos from space… Monster Solar Flares (dhun dhun DHUUN!!!)

Monster Solar Storm Erupts ~ NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured this view of a powerful Class solar flare on Feb. 2011 during a sun storm. NASA scientists called the display a "monster prominence" that kicked up a huge plasma wave.

Centaurus A, and Its Giant Black Hole. (Dai due poli di Centaurus A partono due emissioni di onde-radio a getto della lunghezza di diversi milioni di anni-luce. Al centro della galassia si pensa sia situato un buco nero supermassiccio di molti milioni di masse solari.)

A supermassive black hole lies at the center of this turbulent mix of multimillion-degree gas, dust, and cold gas in the galaxy Centaurus. Go inside the enigma of black holes with NOVA.

A magnified picture of solar flare

An incredibly stunning solar flare erupted from the sun& surface throwing charged particles and searing plasma millions of miles out into space. The blast was was not directed at the earth and it is unlikely to hit any of the planets in our solar system.

On August 31, 2012 the Sun threw a major tantrum. It started with a vast arc of material towering over its surface, a stream of plasma flowing between two sunspots. Sometimes these collapse back down to the Suns surface, but this one exploded, blasting hundreds of millions of tons of material out into space. SDO captured this ridiculously awesome picture of the arc just before it erupted!
