Halloween Solar Storms from SOHO/EIT and SOHO/LASCO
on July 8, 2004
This movie is a combination of SOHO/EIT at 195 angstroms as well as the LASCO/C2 and C3 cameras. At this scale we can see the flashes from solar flares in SOHO/EIT (green) and the subsequent coronal mass ejections in SOHO/LASCO/C2 (red) and SOHO/LASCO/C3 (blue). This movie is synchronized to play with animation IDs 2960 and 2959. For more information on how X-ray solar flares are classified (B, C, M, X), visit SpaceWeather.com.
The last big X-class flare as the active region rotates back to the far side of the Sun.
