Abstract

When we look at a solar flare we observe at relatively close hand a sample of the most energetic phenomena in the universe. These dynamic eruptions can only truly be appreciated from time-lapse movies or spectra. They fill the interplanetary medium with cosmic rays and shock waves, and produce plasmas with temperatures of 50 million degrees. They are rewarding both from the astrophysical and aesthetic points of view.
