Sunscapes
Transition Region and Coronal Explorer

The surface of the sun as observed by the Transition Region and Coronal Explorer (TRACE) in high temporal and spatial resolution. Coronal filaments, loops and mass ejections; magnetic arcades, ultraviolet typhoons and X-ray hurricanes; fugitive prominences, earth-bound to create spectacular auroral displays or to wreak havoc on power grids and satellite telecommunication systems — all archived in one giant database.

And by giant I mean you can download 200+ gigabytes of movies in QuickTime and DVD img files!

For free!

Because the surface of the sun is a legitimate site for topographical investigation and landscape design.


A world of spin and flame is born in the head of the dreamer, blue suns, green whirlwinds, birdbeaks of light pecking open the pomegranate stars

    For convenience, here's a clickable link for of the movie.

    Also, try playing these mp3s by Coil from today's BLDGBLOG's post with some of the movies from TRACE. Such as T195_2003Nov2-3.mov -- which is 644MB, so you've been warned. But you get the same exhilirating effect with smaller files. Quite intoxicating!

    Any other mp3s to complement destabilizing coronal filaments and electromagnetic solar hurricanes?
