A Graceful Solar Flare

SDO20130316A solar prominence began to bow out and then break apart in a graceful, floating style in a little less than four hours on 16 March, 2013. The sequence was captured in extreme ultraviolet light by the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The cloud of the particles appeared to hover above the surface before it faded away. Video here.
