Magnetic coils form spiral galaxy – evidence

birkeland currents galaxy ic 342 plasma electric universe theoryThe spiral arms of galaxy IC 342 appear to be surrounded (formed?) by magnetic coils around them. These magnetic structures also seem to be part of the structure of the galaxy itself.

Astronomers making a detailed, multi-telescope study of a nearby galaxy have discovered a magnetic field coiled around the galaxy's main spiral arm.

... The surprising result showed a huge, helically-twisted loop coiled around the galaxy's main spiral arm. Such a feature, never before seen in a galaxy, is strong enough to affect the flow of gas around the spiral arm.

'Spiral arms can hardly be formed by gravitational forces alone,' Beck said. 'This new IC 342 image indicates that magnetic fields also play an important role in forming spiral arms.'

The new observations provided clues to another aspect of the galaxy, a bright central region that may host a black hole and also is prolifically producing new stars. To maintain the high rate of star production requires a steady inflow of gas from the galaxy's outer regions into its center.

'The magnetic field lines at the inner part of the galaxy point toward the galaxy's center, and would support an inward flow of gas,' Beck said.

Are these plasma filaments the sort of thing you would expect to find in an Electric Universe where plasma and electromagnetic gravity rules instead of Newtons gravity?

There is no black hole in the centre of the galaxy but an electromagnetic circuit/motor?
