25 January 2012 Here Comes Sunshine! Get your hearing protection

Tremendous video of the sun as it hurls CME’s outward
“Helios Flux Data Sonifications
“The following sounds were generated at the Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California in Berkeley using solar wind particle data from two different satellite missions, Helios 1 and 2 and the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE”  Listen to the links.” 

The University of Iowa
“Type-III Radio Bursts Produced by the Oct. 28 and Nov. 4, 2003, X17 and X28 Solar Flares as detected by the Cassini Radio and Plasma Wave Science Instrument “

More amazing video and sonification. 
The Grateful Dead often had a segment of their shows referred to as “Space.”  When we called it that, we were closer than we knew.

 The upper one of a pair of new, solar active regions that just rotated into view of SDO offered a beautiful profile view of cascading loops spiraling above it (Jan. 15-16, 2012) following a solar flare eruption. These loop structures are made of superheated plasma, just one of which is the size of several Earths. With its ability to capture the Sun in amazing detail, SDO observed it all in extreme ultraviolet light. This particular video clip used an image every five minutes to present the motion. Note all of the other spurts and minor bursts from both regions during almost two days.

Dinner last night was Spaghetti Carbonara.  I used smoked trout in place of bacon. There was nothing left over.
