Default Gigantic Solar Tornado Is 5 Times the Size of Earth

http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/20...tories+2%29%29

This enormous tornado erupting from the surface of the sun is big enough to swallow the Earth. In fact, it could swallow five Earths.

Discovered using NASA’s Solar Dynamic Observatory satellite, this colossal twisting mass is made up of superheated gas at a temperature of between 90,000 and 3.6 million degrees Fahrenheit.

Time to dust off the old 'Go Bag', if we had somewhere to go that is!
