Does the solar magnetic field show a North-South divide?

A study of jets travelling through the Sun’s corona at speeds between 200-500 km/s has shown that the fast-moving columns of plasma are deflected much more strongly by the Sun’s magnetic field in the northern hemisphere than in the southern hemisphere. A nor

Solar magnetism revealed by SDO

By combining different images of the Sun, taken almost at the same time on June 7, 2013, the underlying magnetic structure of the Sun and how it appears above the solar surface can be revealed. SDO engineers combined a magnetic image of the Sun, where darker and

Spectacular filament eruption, waves of ionization and Sun's polar magnetic field shift for end of August

Spectacular solar filament eruption, thousands of kilometers long, occurred at the Sun's southeast quadrant. Solar X-Ray flux chart values reached almost M-class flare threshold. Huge filament collapsed after almost a week of activity and it resulted in a large C8.1
