  1. 1. Solar Prominences<br />Alec, Caroline, Lila, and Ethan present:<br />
  2. 2. What are they?<br />Arcs of gas that erupt from the sun<br />Made of ionized solar gas (white-hot hydrogen)<br />Large, one could fit multiple Earths in it<br />Also called filaments<br />Held in place by Magnetic Field of Sun<br />Not Static<br />They are:<br />
  3. 3. What do they do?<br />Extend out 100’s of 1000’s of miles from sun’s surface.<br />Erupt from sun <br />Stay where they are anywhere from hours to months<br />Located above the chromosphere<br />Eventually float away into other layers of sun<br />They:<br />
  4. 4. Why are they there?<br />Because:<br />hot gas in Sun is magnetized<br />Sun rotates, heat in interior churns subsurface layer in big convective bubbles<br />magnetic field gets tangled<br />large magnetic loops burst through the Sun's photosphere and into its atmosphere<br />
