Plasma Stream Tornadoes

Believe it on not there are Tornadoes on the Sun! 

It is tornado season, well not officially stated, but you can see details online at the Solar Dynamics Observatory website / NASA .  SDO 

The video on the site shows the plasma jet activity in extreme ultraviolet light on the sun's surface.  This event occurred on February 7th & 8th, you can see the forces made by strong magnetic fields and the video appears both on the website and on the youtube video below.
