This is really great ! This prominence lasted 90 minutes and is visible via the html link here below, on an accelerated view that takes 24 seconds.
This gives the impression of looking at a liquid : magma properties at this scale and with tremendeous volums will be under study.
Energetic mecanisms that create these solar eruptions are already studied.
This eruption has been pictured on ultraviolet.
Probability of seeing huge solar prominents is better in the next coming years as the solar activity will reach a cyclical activity peak.
