from Goddard:

It’s always shining, always ablaze with light and energy.  In the ubiquity of solar output, Earth swims in an endless tide of particles.  Every time half of the Earth faces the Sun, we experience the brightness of daytime, the Sun’s energy and light driving weather, biology and more.  But in space, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) keeps an eye on our nearest star 24/7. SDO captures images of the Sun in 10 different wavelengths, each of which helps highlight a different temperature of solar material.  In this video we experience images of the Sun in unprecedented detail captured by SDO.  Presented in ultra-high definition video (4K) the video presents the nuclear fire of our life-giving star in intimate detail, offering new perspective into our own relationships with grand forces of the solar system.

Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is a massive burst of gas and magnetic field which is highly visible, notice the reversal patterns arising from the solar corona and being released into the solar wind and others being drawn back down.

The ejected material is a plasma consisting primarily of electrons and protons. While solar flares are very fast, CMEs are relatively slow, all seen in 4K !
