Solar Slinky

A major solar flare observed by TRACE in three colors: the red image shows the ultraviolet continuum, generally characteristic of cool, dense gas; the blue image shows the 171Å pass band, characteristic of material around 1 million degrees; the green channel shows material hotter than about 1.5 million degrees up to approximately 10 million degrees.

TRACE allows us to perform a very detailed study of the thermal evolution of this flare, which was very large, and caused the largest particle storm of the cycle thus far.
