Models of Magnetic Fields Animation
3 D images of the sun by STEREO
Image above: Solar scientists will use STEREO 3-D data to improve computer models that will ultimately lead to predictions of when solar eruptions occurs. The first model shows magnetic fields around the Sun. The second model focuses on an active region. These models are currently static, STEREO 3-D data will help add dynamic (time-changing) features to these models. Animation credit: NASA
