Description

The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) provided us with a front row seat to multiple eruptive events off the northwest limb during the past couple of days (Apr. 20 - Apr 21, 2014). This full disk inverted video using the 304 angstroms channel shows at least 5 eruptions off the limb (top right in video). A number of coronal mass ejections were seen leaving the area in coronagraph imagery, but were each directed away from our planet due to the non geoeffective position. Enjoy the show!
