What a blast!

Coronal Mass Ejection - CME

CME blast -- This dramatic coronal mass ejection was captured 7 August 2002 as it blasted billions of tons of particles millions of miles per hour out into space. In order to see the corona, an occulting disk has to block out the Sun disk. This image consists thus of two images; one of the corona and an image of the sun taken approximately at the same time and then superimposed on the occulting disk. Credit: SOHO - ESA/NASA
