    A great spew. This is caused by magnetic flux tubes that eject plasma into the atmosphere. The temp on the surface is about 6000 degrees but the atmosphere (for unknown reasons) raises to upwards of 300,000 degrees. This eruption will reconnect with opposite charged tubes.

    Meh? To the grandeur of our sun? The most powerful single thing in our solar system? Wow, you kids really ARE jaded aren`t you. Sad...

    By the way, you may be able to simulate a representation of that in photoshop, but you will NEVER be able to recreate it.
