A photographer from United States’ Arizona has captured an astronomical plasma tornado on the sun, that according to him, was as tall as 14 earths.
Furthermore, the photographer claimed that the plasma was raining moon-sized gobs of incandescent material on the sun.
Photographer Andrew McCarthy claimed that he captured an astronomical plasma tornado on sun which was as tall as 14 earths. “I can't imagine a more hellish place”, he wrote in the caption while sharing a video clip of the massive plasma tornado.
According to McCarthy, he spent nearly three hours capturing the plasma tornado with his high-tech telescope. He pointed the telescope on the plasma tornado and keeps recording the video after spotting the phenomena.
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— Andrew McCarthy (@AJamesMcCarthy) March 18, 2023
The photographer successfully posted and captured the gigantium plasma tornado but also regretted that the video was shot in a challenging conditions as it was shot when the sky was cloudy, which brought some glitches to the video.
Andrew McCarthy increased the speed of the video so that people could see the 3 hours of plasma movement in a few moments. "No, this is 3 hours of movement played back over just a few seconds," McCarthy replied to a Twitter user when questioned about the speed of the clip.
So, what are your thoughts about the amazing clip?
