Thin ribbons of plasma and magnetic lines burst from the sun in one of our Space Photos of the Week. See this stunning image and others:.

Sun and Flares A pair of active regions on the sun were captured in extreme ultraviolet light from the Solar Dynamic Observatory spacecraft over a three-day period. The magnetic field lines above the regions produced fluttering arcs waving above them, as well as a couple of flares. Another pair of smaller active regions emerges and trails behind the larger ones.

On August 31, 2012 the Sun threw a major tantrum. It started with a vast arc of material towering over its surface, a stream of plasma flowing between two sunspots. Sometimes these collapse back down to the Sun’s surface, but this one exploded, blasting hundreds of millions of tons of material out into space.    SDO captured this ridiculously awesome picture of the arc just before it erupted!

Light Echo via the Hubble Space Telescope. The red star at the centre of the eyeball-like feature is an unusual erupting supergiant called V838 Monocerotis, located about 20,000 light-years away in the winter constellation Monoceros (the Unicorn).

Gigantic Rolling Wave Captured on the Sun - A coronal mass ejection (CME) erupted from just around the edge of the sun on May in a gigantic rolling wave. CMEs can shoot over a billion tons of particles into space at over a million miles per hour.

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes.
