Spurting Plasma Bursts Out from the Sun -- Courtesy of NASA/Solar Dynamics ObservatoryA stream of plasma burst out from the Sun, but since it lacked enough force to break away, most of it fell back into the Sun on May 27, 2014. A video, seen in a combination of two wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light, covers a little over two hours. This eruption was minor, and such events occur almost every day on the sun and suggest the kind of dynamic activity being driven by powerful magnetic forces near the Sun's surface.
