A colossal amphitheater is captured by an astrophotographer one million miles from the surface of the sun: A stunning image shows a stream of burning plasma traveling at 100,000mph as it plummets into space.
- The amateur astrophotogropher took more than a million pictures of the sun over a six-hour period
- A solar storm erupted, resulting in the greatest solar prominence ever seen
- A plume of plasma began to form from a height that grew to nearly one million miles, then drifted and drifted into space until it disappeared.
An amateur astrophotogropher points his telescope toward the sun and sees a plume shooting from its fiery surface at 100,000 miles per hour as it grows more than a million miles.
Andrew McCarthy, who lives in Arizona, told DailyMail.com that he spent six hours taking more than a million pictures to “stop” on the final image – but because the feature was so heavy, he could only capture half of it in the picture.
An energetic and highly magnetic ejection, superheated gas, or coronal mass ejection (CME), was ejected from what McCarthy says is the largest solar prominence ever witnessed – a bright line extending from the outer surface about 500,000 miles wide.
McCarthy’s day also observed the sun when a minor solar storm flared up into the sun, which drew his attention to the large formation.
“The notices began to lift in great prominence – an obvious sign that something exciting was about to happen,” he said.
So I kept my telescope [at] it, and they kept the CME form.
‘These are the moments held by solar astrologers.’

The colossal conference was held on September 24, which was the day the solar storm erupted on the sun.
Weather, however, was preferred in the lowest categories and was perhaps missed by the eyes on Earth.
The plasma plume began to appear from a giant plume and then burst into space flying at about 100,000 miles per hour, according to McCarthy, who also Live tweeted happening
The images were taken using a five-inch refracting telescope, which McCarthy said ‘had to be changed because pointing the telescope at the sun would otherwise blind you.’
The plume began to grow gradually, reaching 200,000 miles and then 600,000, reaching more than a million miles and breaking off into space.
This distance from earth to JWST [Jame Webb Space Telescope]’ he shared in a tweet.
McCarthy, who has a stunning gallery of images displaying local wonders, kept his eyes on the crest for at least two hours watching it break off and float into space, where it became more of a ball of moon than a roar. The gas group was initially superheated.
and the farther it moved, the weaker it became.
“The front you see in the photo extends about 500,000 miles, maybe a little less,” McCarthy told DailyMail.com.
McCarthy took more than a million pictures of the sun and put them down for the last part. He watched the plume grow until it fell off and drifted off into space. The crude picture he took was painted
It’s easy to visualize when you realize that the sun is 865,000 miles wide!
“I searched for a few minutes and my live tweets came out a million miles closer, but they didn’t make it into the final photo.”
McCarthy goes on to explain that because so many images were used, he called the technique a “happy imagination in his shots.”
“I use the TIFF format (a video format that many astrophotographers use) because I find that I have more power to reject bad pictures when my favorite has picked up or seen worse conditions,” he said.
Our atmosphere is deceptive at times.
