Standard Model of a Flare

(description of how solar flares might form)

The Standard Model of a Flare (Solar Flare) is that something opens up magnetic field lines which then close down and reconnect, releasing electrons traveling along the field lines which head the Chromosphere at the footprints causing chromosphere Plasma to travel around the loops into the Corona.
