Magnetic tornado compared to Europe


Illustration of an observed magnetic tornado vortex in the solar atmosphere. The background image was recorded with NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, while the stacked images were obtained with the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope (Canary Isl.). The bluish images reveal the swirl signature of a magnetic tornado. We include a map of Europe to scale. Credits: Scullion & Wedemeyer-Böhm (2012); NASA
