This is too cool not to share. Yesterday's entry at SpaceWeather.com pointed out a movie from NASA's Stereo-B spacecraft of an eruption on the sun. SpaceWeather says, "The movie spans a two day period, July 12-14, and shows a blob of gas five times the size of Earth being hurled away from the sun. Earth was not in the 'line of fire' so no geomagnetic storms or auroras resulted from the blast."Click for movie. It's a big file.
Today's entry is pretty amazing too... images of today's solar eclipse projected onto the floor by the windows of a mosque in Isfahan.
