The activities happening on the surface of the Sun are surprising the astronomers these days. Now another similar incident has been caught on camera in which a 1 lakh kilometer high plasma wall has been seen on the surface of the Sun. LiveScience Astrophotographer Schaumburger Poupeau captured this picture, reports . It is told that this wall is so high that 8 earths can be stacked one on top of the other.
According to the information given, such structures have been observed earlier on the surface of the Sun. These are visible on the surface of the Sun around its poles. These structures emerge at very short intervals and are visible around the rings of the poles. These are called Polar Crown Prominences (PCP). As far as their formation is concerned, they are similar to ordinary prominences which are formed from plasma or ionized gas. This plasma continuously erupts out of the surface of the Sun.
NASA says that the magnetic field near the poles on the sun is very powerful. That’s why this plasma as soon as it explodes upwards, falls downwards. For this reason, they are also called plasma waterfalls. Their speed has also been said to be very high. According to Space.com, when the plasma starts falling down after bursting upwards, its speed is 22370 miles per hour or 36 thousand kilometers per hour.
