Solar Flare Bursts Into Fiery Rain Over The Sun Captured On Video

That globe of hot plasma could swallow the Earth whole. No big deal.

Source: nasa.gov  /  via: io9.com

Yesterday NASA released an awe-inspiring time lapse of the sun from July 2012.

On the 19th of July a solar flare burst from the surface of the sun. Instead of dispersing, the hot plasma became trapped in the magnetic field emanating from the region of the eruption. Normally invisible to the naked eye, the lines of the magnetic field lit up as it captured the flare and forced it back down to the solar surface in a dazzling phenomenon known as a coronal rain.

The time lapse video is approximately one frame every 12 seconds, which is presented at 30 FPS making each second the equivalent of six minutes.

Created by Baroque painter Domenico Zampieri, "A Virgin with a Unicorn" is a fresco that still resides in the Farnese Palace in Italy. Some art historians attribute the work to Annibale Carracci, Domenico's teacher, claiming the latter plagiarized his teacher's work.

Based on: "Whistler's Mother"

Officially titled "Arrangement in Grey and Black No.1," "Whistler's Mother" was completed in 1871 by American painter James McNeill Whistler. Victorians had specific sensibilities about what constituted a proper portrait. Whistler's muted color palette and seated subject were not up to snuff, hence the clunky moniker in order to get it shown to the public.

There is a way to make motion posters into a huge Hollywood marketing tool. Keep trying, you can do it! (Warning: Auto-Sound.)

"Conan The Barbarian" was one of the first attempts at a motion poster. It…could have been better.

"Conan The Barbarian" was one of the first attempts at a motion poster. It…could have been better.

Pros:
- Flying birds in the background.
- Pioneer attempt opening the door for other studios to try too!

Cons:
- Mostly just a big poster you move around with your mouse.
- Auto-play sound. (NO!)
- Not a GIF but a "sharable" link. There isn't even an embed feature so click thru to see it in motion.
- No ability to save to desktop for sharing later.

"The Hunger Games" realized their target demographic loves social media, home of the GIF, and marketed accordingly.

Pros:
- FIRE!
- Lots of motion.
- Embeddable.

Cons:
- Still not a GIF, making it slightly more difficult to share.
- No ability to "Save As".
- Auto-play sound (NO!)

Intrepid fans managed to turn the motion poster into an easily shared GIF.
