Monday Astronomy Picture Ponderings 5/23/2022

A close-up gif of a solar “tsunami” of a solar flare “bursting” and rippling across the solar surface, starting from the top left of the picture of the Sun. The image is in black and white with the solar flare appearing brighter than the rest of the sun as the released energy is hotter than the rest of the Sun’s surface.
