'Cannibal CME' from Huge Explosion on Surface of Sun Is about to Hit Earth

Recommended Posts

A "cannibal" eruption of solar material is due to make contact with Earth from Wednesday through Friday after a series of explosions on the sun's surface in recent days.

The eruption of material, known as a coronal mass ejection (CME), was launched from the sun in the early hours of August 15, less than a day after another one had been observed on August 14.

CMEs are clouds of charged matter known as plasma that are ejected from the sun whenever a group of the sun's tangled magnetic field lines suddenly shift or realign, releasing huge amounts of energy.


“In this case, NOAA forecasters expect G1 (minor) to G2-class (moderate) geomagnetic storms.

“During such storms naked-eye auroras can descend into the USA as far south as New York and Idaho (geomagnetic latitude 55 degrees).”

Interesting but it effects the entire world not just the USA perhaps science space would be a better section

Adding to this with today's article by Newsweek.



 A giant sunspot may be about to erupt, sending out the most powerful form of solar flares growing for days.

Sunspot AR3089, which is facing towards the Earth, has now developed a delta-class magnetic field, meaning that it has built up enough energy that it may release X-class solar flares.
