Ever wonder what a solar prominence the sun's surface looks like?

California-based space photographer captures incredible timelapse of the sun's surface. The clip, filmed on April 15 by Andrew McCarthy, is made up of 30 individual shots taken over a span of an hour, each shot capturing a video of the sun for 200 frames, which have been was stacked, sharpened, and stretched to reveal the faint prominence. A prominence is a large, bright, gaseous feature extending outward from the sun's surface, often in a loop shape. Prominences are anchored to the sun's surface in the photosphere and extend outwards into the solar corona. "This is a solar prominence on the limb of our sun, by my estimate about 100,000 miles wide, one of the widest ones I've seen during this solar minimum period," the filmer told Newsflare.
