Coronal Mass Ejection as viewed by the Solar Dynamics Observatory

The Sun unleashed an M-2 (medium-sized) solar flare, an S1-class (minor) radiation storm and a spectacular coronal mass ejection (CME) on June 7, 2011 from sunspot complex 1226-1227. The large cloud of particles mushroomed up and fell back down looking as if it covered an area of almost half the solar surface.

Did you know that it take Misha about 20 minutes just to write one tweet? Well it does.

When Misha arrived in Haiti, we sat at the same table in the dining room. He was absolutely exhausted, having been up for about 36 hours. He pulled out his phone and started pressing buttons, then looked frustrated. He tried again, then declared, “I CAN’T REMEMBER MY TWITTER PASSWORD.”
And I almost choked trying to keep the laughter inside.
