Above: “Notice the bright flare on the limb (edge) of the sun. You can also see a classic lightbulb-shaped CME coming off this flare. This image is from April 15, 2022. Image via NASA SDO.

“April 16: Sun activity picking up

“The sun was busy with multiple flares – between C- and M-class – on Friday and again so far this morning (April 16, 2022)! Most activity had been on the far side, the side we’re currently not seeing from Earth. You can see a classic “lightbulb” shape in a (non-Earth-directed) CME released from one of the flares on the sun’s limb. See the video in Alex’s tweet, below.

“A primary flare source appears to be the old sunspot AR2975. There’s lots of chatter online about this region, and about what it’ll be re-named when it comes fully into view, probably around April 17. The sun rotates approximately once every 27 days. So the same sunspots might come into view on the Earth-facing side again and again. Each time, they get a new label.

‘YAY! Our new friend making some beautiful music! The first 13 hours, April 15 in SDO 171 /131 combined. Shows us the loops, material, and flare activity ~ 600,000 to 10 million kelvin. Notice the classic lightbulb-shape eruption. HOT!! Next week could be very exciting.??? pic.twitter.com/Vyn8mOZh4x

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Barb. When artificial colors are applied to bodies like this they can reveal some most unexpected features!

This was great fun to do Bill and a most unusual colour for the sun - not the smooth surface most people would think - thanks for this one my friend. ✿❛‿❛

Bill_I_Am

You're most welcome, luly. And thank you both, luly and Donna, for your kind words.

luly

@dhi Thank you Donna, I feel the same about you and our friends here too.
@Bill_I_Am, when I was new here, several years ago, I will never forget how you, Bill, help me so much with your kind supportive way, to feel more at home.

dhi

@luly, you are a very wonderful comrade in arms as are many of our friends here on this site.

It’s so good to see you Bill, but I feel like Donna, it’s best to take it easy and get back when you have more energy and recover from your surgery, as much as it would be wonderful to see you soon. My prayers are with you Bill, take care, you are a very special friend.

dhi

@Bill_I_Am
Take care my friend and take it easy as you get back your energy and recover from your surgery.

An angry looking beast, wouldn't be interesting to be able to travel into the upper layers in a non melting heat reflecting air conditioned vehicle slowly descending into the heart of our star of course with a suitable shield to be able to see through the blinding light. TFS Bill
