Second hole 20 times larger than Earth rips through the sun's surface

Grim Reaper 6

Recommended Posts


A massive hole 20 times larger than Earth has ripped through the sun - making it the second to appear in one week. The gaping 'coronal hole' is unleashing 1.8-million-mile-per-hour solar winds toward our planet, which will impact us on Friday. Scientists are closely monitoring the situation, to see if the winds will impact Earth's magnetic field, satellites and technology. The first hole, spotted on March 23, is 30 times the size of Earth, which released solar winds that triggered stunning auroras as far south as ArizonaThey appear dark when viewed in many wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light, such as seen here. At times, the solar wind can generate aurora at higher latitudes on Earth.'
