On July 10, 2022, the Sun featured a gigantic solar prominence over the chromosphere, throwing a coronal mass ejection (CME) into space.
According to a team of European scientists, solar tornadoes are not rotating after all. Their new analysis of these gigantic structures, each one several times the size of the Earth, indicates that they may have been misnamed because scientists have so far only been…
Moderately strong solar flare reaching M1.5 at its peak time erupted at 12:53 UTC on July 3, 2015. The event started at 12:47 and ended at 12:53 UTC.The source was Region 2378, which rotated into the southwest quadrant yesterday producing innumerous C-class solar flares
A long duration M1.2 solar flare erupted from the vicinity of departing Region 2365, off the southwest limb, at 01:27 UTC on June 18, 2015. The event produced a large Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) and is currently causing solar radiation storm on Earth, reaching S1 (Minor
This movie provides an overview of nine great solar prominences that were visible in July 2013.

A large prominence lifted off the northwest limb on July 21, 2013 and generated a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), directed to the north and away from Earth.
STEREO Ahead and STEREO Behind COR2 images show the prominence flaring on July 22, 2013
Impressive M1.0 solar flare erupted at 20:00 UTC on May 31, 2013. Event started at 19:52 UTC and ended at 20:06 UTC. The source of eruption was Active Region 1760. This region is small but appears to have a large amount of shear in the central spot.
Strong solar flare erupted on May 9, 2013 at 22:52 with peak at 23:15 UTC as C9.1 flare, just below M-class threshold. The event was centered around old returning Sunspot 1726. It will be on the visible solar disk in the next 24 hours when it will be designated as
A spectacular prominence eruption was observed on the Sun on May 1, 2013 at 02:30 UTC. The event was classified as a farside eruption from active region located beyond eastern limb. This was the largest such event in quite some time now.
Powerful blast was unleashed
A huge magnetic filament erupted off the Sun's southwestern limb during the early hours of February 27, 2013. Most of the plasma looks to be headed away from the Earth though. On the Earth side of the Sun, Active Region 1682 developed a 'beta-gamma'
