BECAUSE SPACE IS AWESOME: Massive Solar Eruption Caught on Camera! [Video]

On August 31, NASA captured on video a “long filament of solar material” that tore away from the sun’s atmosphere – or ‘corona’ – at over 900 miles per second!

Editor’s note: We already had a post featuring the solar eruption a few days ago, but this video shows the eruption in much more details, so we’ll keep it there. :)
