Lyrids peak Apr 22 2010 and First Light images of Sun

Space Weather News for April 21, 2010

MUST-SEE IMAGES OF THE SUN: At a press conference today, researchers unveiled First Light images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory, NASA’s “Hubble for the Sun.”

There are huge erupting prominences, crackling solar flares, and gigantic shock waves shown with a clarity ten times better than HDTV. The images must be seen to be believed.
