Flashing Flares


A wide and vigorous active region produced several flares as SDO observed in extreme ultraviolet light (Nov. 11-12, 2010). The tangle of magnetic field lines, made visible by particles spinning along them, connected and reconnected several times. Since the active region is facing towards Earth, it may produce geo-effective events in upcoming days.
