    What happens when a giant hole opens on the sun?

    It sounds like something from cosmic horror: A gaping black gash opens in the face of the sun like a solar wound and lets out a stream of strange material.

    Yet coronal holes aren't an uncommon phenomenon.

    The shifting hole photographed by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory in orbit around the sun on October 10 is spectacular. At over 50 times the diameter of Earth at its widest point, it's one of the largest ever seen by the observatory.

    A coronal hole isn't actually a hole in the sun. It's a comparatively colder region in the plasma aura that surrounds the sun. In X-ray and extreme ultraviolet images, these regions appear black.

    Astronomers name it something like "The Brown Eye of the Sun".
