Satellite called IMAGE, say What?

Satellite studies Plasmasphere

EUV Images of the Plasmasphere

plasmasphere movies do not make any sense.
Why does the donut change sizes?

Why does it seem like the plasma is moving towards the sun
and it's not streaming away from the sun.

The sattelite was a 2 year misson and we only have access to
6 movies of non-sequential days

Where's the fireworks?, we are told it's like a coment very large
tail/trail of plasma

EUV Select Bibliography

Follow up required to understand what it is we are looking at. stops reporting Magnetospheric and Atmospheric News under
this heading just before this satellite was put into orbit.. curious..

Remember to be kind to your mind ...
