Posted By Tiago Pereira, Friday 7 August 2020

We are pleased to announce that the winner of the ESPD Media of the Month contest for August is Luc Rouppe van der Voort (University of Oslo), with the following image of spicules:

Description: This image was observed with the SOUP instrument at the Swedish 1-meter Solar Telescope (SST) on La Palma (Spain) and shows spicules close to the solar limb. Spicules are thin, elongated jets of a few hundred kilometers wide. They reach up to 6000 km height and can move at speeds of more than 100 km/s. Spicules are found all over the solar surface, but can be observed most easily near the limb of the Sun.The image is taken at a Doppler offset of +0.07 nm in the red wing of the H-alpha spectral line.
