Description:

Coronal loops are bright, curving structures that appear as arcs above the Sun's surface. Hot plasma causes these loops to glow. The electrified plasma flows along the curving lines of powerful magnetic fields, giving the coronal loops their characteristic shapes. Makes me want to say: "Double Coronal Loop... all the way, across the sky!" (Ref: Double Rainbow meme). My Flickr page has a higher resolution image.
