NASA has captured an incredible moment of a massive solar tornado, 14 times bigger than that of earth, swirling over the sun’s surface.
Solar tornado near the sun’s North Pole. This thing was twisting and growing for 3 days.
Unlike tornadoes on Earth, tornadoes on the sun are controlled by magnetism. Solar magnetic fields twist in a furious spiral, dragging clouds of plasma around with them.

The whirlwind was 74,500 miles high and swirled at a speed of 310,000 miles per hour.
I spent 3 hours yesterday with my solar telescope pointed at a tall tornado-y looking thing on the sun. This 14-Earths-tall swirling column of plasma was raining moon-sized gobs of incandescent material on the sun. I can’t imagine a more hellish place. pic.twitter.com/dewzNEAEJA

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a massive ‘tornado’ on the sun in multiple wavelengths from March 15-18, 2023. Unlike the Earth, tornadoes on the sun are controlled by magnetism.
Before it’s too late! Stock up on iodine pills for the next nuclear disaster…
Although there is a huge “why” that surrounds this phenomenon, astronomers think that the prominence, or filament, may be connected in some way to the sun’s magnetic field reversal that takes place once each cycle.
