PK-GFM bears this livery, which we call it retro these days. Image taken at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, from my seat in the aircraft I was on. #vscocam #vsco #vscocamsg #garudaindonesia #garuda #Boeing #Boeing737 #avgeek #airplane #aircraft #aeroplane #airline

Coronal loops in an active region of the Sun An active region of the sun just rotating into the view of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory gives a profile view of coronal loops over about a two-day period, from Feb. 8-10, 2014. Coronal loops are found around sunspots and in active regions. These structures are associated with the closed magnetic field lines that connect magnetic regions on the solar surface. Many coronal loops last for days or weeks, but most change quite rapidly. T...
