Solar Prominence Liftoff (Colour version) - “I may not get a lot done today with the Sun putting on this sort of show”, announced amateur astrophotographer Paul Stewart from his upside down observatory in New Zealand yesterday. No kidding Paul, I can’t imagine anything else that you should be doing with your day other then recording this amazing animation of a massive prominence blasting off the surface of the Sun.

Constellation of Orion over El Castillo, the central pyramid at Chichen Itza. The Mayan’s had an incredibly keen eye for astronomy and a love of mathematics. They built structures that lined up with different astronomical events, which allowed them to keep rather precise time. This paved the way for the invention of some of the most complicated calendars ever created

Venus orbits closer to the Sun than the Earth does, and on rare occasions our orbits align such that Venus passes directly in front of the Sun. The last time this happened was in 2004, and it happened again on June 5, 2012. Probably millions of photos of the event were taken, but one of my favorites is this view from the NASA/JAXA (Japanese Space Agency) Hinode spacecraft, just as Venus was fully entering the Sun’s disk. The Sun looks like a boiling cauldron with Venus silhouetted against it.

On Aug. 31, 2012, a vast arch of material was lifted up off the surface of the Sun by its powerful magnetic field. Sometimes these arches collapse back down, but this one erupted, blasting hundreds of millions of tons of superheated plasma into space at a speed of 1,400 kilometers per second (900 miles per second)—over a thousand times faster than a rifle bullet. The scale of this is crushing! The arch was 300,000 kilometers (200,000) miles) across, 25 times larger than the Earth.

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."

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory uses gradient filters to enhance contrast, using them to accentuate fine structures that might otherwise be lost in the background noise. On the sun, for example, scientists wish to study a phenomenon known as coronal loops, which are giant arcs of solar material constrained to travel along that particular path by the magnetic fields in the sun's atmosphere.

This picture was taken on the wet sand at low tide on the beach at Tréguennec in North West France and shows the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter. One of the astronomical highlights of 2012, the conjunction was the period when the two bright planets appeared conspicuously close together in the sky. Their apparent closeness was an optical illusion – Jupiter was in fact millions of kilometres furt

Saturn's largest moon, Titan appears to be strung like a bead on its rings, which cast shadows onto the southern hemisphere of the gas giant in this extraordinary image from the Cassini Spacecraft. Faint but exquisite detail in the gas giant’s upper atmosphere paints a tranquil scene. A thin band of bright white ammonia ice clouds is etched into the planet’s disc towards the top of the image while clouds dotted below are faded scars of a huge storm that raged across the planet through much of 20
A new angle on Titan This shot of Titan and Saturn was acquired by the Cassini spacecraft on May 6, 2012 just after a pass by the haze-covered moon. It’s a color-composite made from images taken in Cassini’s red, green and blue color channels, and the resulting image was color adjusted a bit to appear more “Saturny”. Cassini also made some closer passes of Titan on May 6, taking images within about 710,000 km.

That robot, of course, is the spacecraft Cassini, while the new amazing view includes a bright moon, thin rings, oddly broken clouds, and warped shadows. Titan, Saturn's largest moon, appears above as a featureless tan as it is continually shrouded in thick clouds.
Saturn's Iapetus: Painted Moon- Vast sections of this strange world are dark as coal, while others are as bright as ice. The composition of the dark material is unknown, but infrared spectra indicate that it possibly contains some dark form of carbon. A leading hypothesis is that the dark material is mostly dirt leftover when relatively warm but dirty ice sublimates.

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.
