A large sheet of glowing gases that bursts outward from the sun's chromosphere.
An arc of gas that erupts from the surface of the Sun. Also known as a filament, Solar prominences are supported inside the Sun's corona by strong magnetic fields. Solar prominences often stand 100,000 km in height, and can last from several days to several months.
large eruptions of luminous hydrogen gas that rise thousands of kilometers above the chromosphere
a cloud of solar gas held above the Sun's surface by the Sun's magnetic field
An arching loop of chromospheric gas confined by the Sun's magnetic field.
An eruption of relatively cool, high-density gas from the solar chromosphere into the corona.
A solar prominence is an arc of gas that erupts from the surface of the Sun. Prominences can loop hundreds of thousands of miles into space and can last for many months.
A solar prominence is a large bright feature located in the solar corona. While the corona consists of extremely hot ionized gases, known as plasma, which do not emit much visible light, prominences contain much cooler plasma, similar in composition to that of the chromosphere. A prominence forms over timescales of about a day, and may persist in the corona for several weeks.
