Solar prominences in special shapes= what a coincidence

Solar prominences are ionized super heated clouds of hydrogen twisted and lifted aloft by solar magnetic fields. They can often be seen with special choronographs (lLinkight blocking telescope) and during total solar eclipses. They are common, but how often do they twist into this shape (on 12/25/2007).
see at Http://spaceweather.com

(E.O.A.S.blog1) Students will learn about the Sun and sun-like storms called Prominences and how magnetic forces affect these storms

If no 12/25/2007 try archives

Happy holidays!!
