Dance of Magnetic Fields Exposed to Human Eyes

    Unfortunately, magnetic fields are by their nature invisible, but scientists from NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory have managed to put on film what these natural phenomenons would look like if we could see them with our own eyes. Please note that this is a simulation and has been created using sound-controlled CGI and 3D compositing. Enjoy!

    Is that even realistic? Shouldn't there be some sort of consistency in the patterns?

    I thought magnetic fields were uniform and symmetric, much like the drawings of a magnetic field of a bar magnet. Static and constant.
    Why are those likes going all over the place?
    Thanks :)
