The Sun blasted off a number of coronal mass ejections in just over two days (Dec. 7-9, 2011) by SOHO's C2 coronagraph. We superimposed the Sun from the Solar Dynamics Observatory to show what the Sun was doing during the same time frame. The first blast was determined to have originated on the far side of the Sun. The final, good-sized blast (lower left) was caused by the looping prominence eruption visible in the Sun image. The overall level of solar activity continues to increase as the Sun approaches its peak period activity called solar maximum, expected in 2013.
