NJIT high-resolution images capture a solar flare as it unfolds
Newark NJ (SPX) Apr 20, 2016
Scientists at NJIT's Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO) have captured unprecedented images of a recent solar flare, including bright flare ribbons seen crossing a sunspot followed by "coronal rain," plasma that condenses in the cooling phase shortly after the flare, showering the visible surface of the Sun where it lands in brilliant explosions. The new images provide insights into one of the central puzzles of solar physics - how energy is transferred from one region of the Sun to another during a ... read more
