On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the Sun’s atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT.

The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled away from the Sun at over 900 miles per second. This movie shows the ejection from a variety of viewpoints as captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO), and the joint NASA-Solar-Heliospheric-Observatory/" target="_blank">ESA/NASA Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).
