NASA’s solar observatory has captured this
incredible solar ejection with giant bursts of solar material erupting off the side of
the sun. The Coronal Mass Ejection, known as a CME,
erupted from the sun at outward speeds of 1.5 million miles per hour. NASA say the field of the solar ejection was
about five Earths wide and about seven and a half Earths tall. The IRIS Observatory is NASA’s latest observatory
launched in June last year to look into the lowest levels of the sun’s atmosphere.
