The impact created a huge splash as seen on the video, but the impact at the surface was blocked by an occluding disk that allows the SDO to image the sun's corona. It's still very impressive though!"

  • Leave it there in disgust.
  • Leave it there to admire.
  • Peal off and discard.
  • Put it on something else, such as a file cabinet.
  • Put it on a Linux/Mac user's computer when he's not looking
  • Send it to Cowboy Neal

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
