    Plasma ejected from the Sun’s Corona

    Solar Flares are ‘Plasma ejected from the Sun’s Corona’.  A solar flares occurs when magnetic energy that has built up in the solar atmosphere is suddenly released. Solar flares extend out to the layer of the Sun known as corona. It is the outermost atmosphere of the Sun, consisting rarefied gas.
    “Solar flares are often followed by a large ejection of plasma from the surface of the Sun called a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME).”
