Sheet of Plasma

Sheet of Plasma

A sheet of plasma blasted out into space from just behind the edge of the Sun (July 28, 2017). While some material escaped into space, a portion of it was unable to break the pull of gravity and the magnetic forces nearby and can be seen falling back to the Sun. The 3.5 hours of action was captured in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light.
