nasagoddard Sun Releases Solar Light Bulb - The first of a series of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) over three days (Aug. 20-22), this bulbous CME certainly resembles a light bulb. It has the thin outer edge and a bright, glowing core at its center. CMEs are often bulbous, but it has been years since we have seen one with the elements (pun intended) of a light bulb. The frames were taken by SOHO's LASCO C3 instrument. Credit: NASA/GSFC/SOHO #nasa #nasagoddard #sun 3y
