300,000 Mile Per Hour Solar Plasma Tornado

For a 30 hour spell on Feb 7-8, 2012 the Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a plasma tornado travelling across the Sun’s surface at speeds estimated to be around 300,000 mile.

Not only is the speed mind blowing but keep in mind that this tornado is the size of our Earth and has a temperature of 15,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
