Solar Dragon - Resembling a dragon's tail, remnants of a solar filament strain to escape the sun's gravity. Most of the electrically charged gas - imaged in extreme ultraviolet light - was unsuccessful in its escape attempt and fell back into the sun. Filaments form when magnetic field lines push out of the sun in loops, holding dense gas above the surface of the sun -

COLLIDING GALAXIES The Hubble Space Telescope  captured this image of The Mice, two galaxies in the process of  merging. Each galaxy probably has a supermassive black hole  at its center, and eventually the two black holes will sink to the  center of the merged galaxy and collide.

Impending collision of galaxies threatens mass extinctions in four billion years (so not before the solar eclipse)
