Magnetic field lines crossed in an X
01/28/13

 

Hi-C also detected an area where magnetic field lines crossed in an X, then straightened out as the fields reconnected. Minutes later, that spot erupted with a mini solar flare. Images of the same location taken with the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) aboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory show the superior resolution of Hi-C. Credit: NASA
