Nasa’s James Webb Telescope recorded a breakoff around the Sun earlier this week. Through the telescope, it has been recorded that one polar vertex has been broken off from the sun, which leaves the scientist confused.
Dr. Tamitha Skov, one of the scientists who recently posted many updates covering the sun and space, wrote through Twitter that Material from a northern prominence just broke away from the central filament, which was recorded by NASA”s James Webb Telescope and now the Polar Vortex is circulating the north pole of the star.
In case, Solar prominence is a brighter and larger feature that seems like something extended out of the sun’s surface and is also known as the corona. It may take a time of a day to form a prominence; they can remain for thousands of months and loop into space for thousands of miles.
Scientist is still unable to find out the reason behind the formation of prominence as researches are still the way.

Following this report, spaceweather.com also reported that a medium but powerful solar flare was found to break off in the pacific ocean last week on 07 February.
National Center’s Deputy director – Scott McIntosh, a solar physics for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, said he had not seen anything like this vertex. Over the breakoff of this northern prominence, there is still confusion among the scientists. Some are saying that it could be due to the reversal of the sun’s magnetic field.
Some are saying that this happens every 1-year solar cycle when the sun reaches its 55-degree latitude then these type of unusual things happened.
It has been reported that once in every solar cycle, the sun reaches a 55-degree latitude and starts to march up to the solar poles. However, it is fascinating and curious, but still, there is a big “why” behind it, like why it happened and how it happened. This is still a mystery why this moved towards the pole and then disappeared and again started moving, further reported.
So have you seen this breakoff, and how do you feel after seeing this? Please share your views on this breakoff captured by Nasa’s Massive Sun Breakoff.
