|Solar Tsunamis - View with a Spin|
Push-in to a region of the Sun to witness a solar tsunami after a flare event. The tsunami moves hot gas (bright) out of the region, revealing cooler regions (darker) below. This view rotates on the push-in to keep the region of the flare event visible (to the left in the final frame).
