Solar Tsunami Caught Blasting Away At Over a Million Kilometers Per Hour
ScienceDaily (Apr. 3, 2008) — Images from the twin STEREO spacecraft show, for the first time, a solar tsunami blasting its way through the Sun’s lower atmosphere.

Solar tsunamis are launched by huge explosions near the Sun's atmosphere, called coronal mass ejections (CMEs). Although solar tsunamis share much in common with tsunamis on Earth, the solar version can travel at over a million kilometers per hour.

The tsunami took place on 19th May 2007 and lasted for about 35 minutes, reaching peak speeds around 20 minutes after the initial blast. The observations were made by a team from Trinity College Dublin.

The discovery was presented by David Long at the RAS National Astronomy Meeting in Belfast on April 2. “The energy released in these explosions is phenomenal, about two billion times the annual world energy consumption in just a fraction of a second. In half an hour, we saw the tsunami cover almost the full disc of the Sun, nearly a million kilometres away from the epicentre,” said Long.

Beautiful and horrifying at once. Life is full of this sort of thing.
Here is where I look back.
Here is where you fell.
This is where I got up,
Shaking off my tail
This is where your rope trick
Started to look stale.
A greyhound pass for the boy in the well.

Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion.
