This video created with data from the Solar Dynamics Observatory is just absolutely and astoundingly beautiful, showing magnetic loops on the Sun earlier today (October 22, 2011). Via @TheSunToday Twitter feed, just watch how the magnetic loops jump, shimmer and coil back into the Sun, following a long duration M1 flare at about 1100 UTC.
