In the conventional view, flare energy accumulates in the electromagnetic field of the corona prior to its sudden and bursty release. This kind of behavior appears in other astronomical systems composed of plasmas, and the solar case is one that we can resolve telescopically and study via imaging spectroscopy – even stereoscopically – over a very broad energy range. I will discuss a small part of the current flood of data from an amazing array of telescopes and detectors. The newest discoveries range from the detection of MeV-energy neutral atoms near Earth, to the “tail-wags-the-dog” flare acoustic waves in the solar interior. The presentation will be mainly observational, and focused on the electrodynamics of the flare energy and mass cycles.
