NASA captured and posted this beautiful footage of coronal loops seen below. Coronal loops are the curves seen projecting from, and returning to, the surface. The start and return points are often between pairs of solar flare spots with opposite polarity. Images are most easily captured within the range of the electromagnetic spectrum including extreme UV lighting and x-ray waves. These mesmerizing magnetic images can be viewed in the video below.
