A mysterious 'Rosetta Stone' explosion reveals a missing link behind solar eruptions

The failed portion of a solar eruption on March 13, 2016. NASA/Solar Dynamics Observatory Scientists recently examined a solar eruption from 2016 that seemed to defy categorization. They named it the "Rosetta Stone" since it connected three different types of eruptions. Their research now suggests that all three forms of solar eruptions may have the same origin.

Sun-Orbiting Spacecraft Takes Fascinating Images of a Coronal Mass Ejection

Coronal mass ejections are regular space weather events involving huge, fast-moving expulsions of plasma from the Sun’s surface. They’re routinely observed by a bevy of telescopes, and recently, Solar Orbiter has imaged its first stellar burps.Read more...

An eruption on the sun didn't bring the aurora to Pennsylvania or Oregon this week, but more solar outbursts are expected soon

The sun blows out a coronal mass ejection, February 24, 2015. NASA/GSFC An eruption on the sun's surface sent plasma and charged particles speeding towards Earth this week. Forecasts suggested that this coronal mass ejection would reach our planet late Wednesday as a solar storm that could interfere with radio, GPS, and power grids. The aurora borealis could have appeared from Pennsylvania to Iowa to Oregon as solar particles interacted with the atmosphere. But the solar storm's magnetic f...
