    Post SDO and STEREO Spot Something New On the Sun

    One day in the fall of 2011, Neil Sheeley, a solar scientist at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., did what he always does Ð look through the daily images of the sun from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

    But on this day he saw something he'd never noticed before: a pattern of cells with bright centers and dark boundaries occurring in the sun's atmosphere, the corona. These cells looked somewhat like a cell pattern that occurs on the sun's surface -- similar to the bubbles that rise to the top of boiling water -- but it was a surprise to find this pattern higher up in the corona, which is normally dominated by bright loops and dark coronal holes.

    The act of two or more aircraft flying together in a disciplined, synchronized manner is one of the cornerstones of military aviation. What if you could take the level of precision of these great aviators to, say, the Moon?
