This is an image of magnetic loops on the sun, captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). It has been processed to highlight the edges of each loop to make the structure more clear. A series of loops such as this is known as the a flux rope, and these lie at the hears of eruptions on the sun known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs).
