Caption: This sequence of photos obtained in UV light shows a time series of images of the sun taken by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft on February 11, 1996 from its unique vantage point at the L1 gravity neutral point, 1 million miles sunward from Earth. An ''eruptive prominence'' or blob of 60,000 degree gas, over 80,000 miles long, was ejected at a speed of at least 15,000 miles per hour. The gaseous blob is shown to the left in each image.
