Today’s “Whoa…” A tornado on the Sun.

by David Ng

This footage was caught over a 30 hour period on February 7th and 8th.

…The tornado might be as large as the Earth itself and have gusts up to 300,000 miles per hour. By comparison, the strongest tornadoes on earth, F5 storms, clock wind speeds at a relatively paltry (though incredibly destructive) 300 mph.
