Flourishing Loops


A bright set of loops quickly appeared as if out of nowhere after a small eruption upset the magnetic field above an active region just at the edge of the Sun. The video taken in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light covers about 12 hours (Nov. 25, 2015). All of these loops show energetic particles spiraling along magnetic field lines.
