Video: 'Canyon Of Fire'

Video: 'Canyon Of Fire'

NASA has released a spectacular video of what it describes as a 'canyon of fire' erupting from the surface of the sun. The footage, compiled from images captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, shows a gigantic 200,000-mile-long solar filament rip through the sun's atmosphere, leaving behind a fiery channel where magnetic fields held the filament in place before the blast. Check it out at NASA.gov.
