NASA Releases Images Showcasing Coronal Mass Ejection

It is for the first time that NASA has released the images of coronal mass ejection, which experts believe will forever change the way we view the sun.

Yes, the recent release of the series of CME images by NASA are clearly showcasing the formation of coronal mass ejections , which are the efforts of the workings of both, the U. S. space agency and the team of international astronomers.

The announcements of the release of the images came on Friday from the officials, who claimed in their statements that they have received few extreme ultraviolet images from the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) instrument on board NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

The above study was led by Angelos Vourlidas, a solar scientist at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D. C. The study was presented and published by the Astrophysical Journal on January 31 of this year.

NASA has detailed that the captured images date July 18, 2012, when during an ongoing mission, the images were clicked. No images than the latest ones have ever captured better sighting of CME's formation and eruption from the surface of the sun.

Astronomers believe that the images can help them gain unprecedented amount of data on occurrence of such strange sun formations and the driving forces behind them.
