- What In The World Is Happening To The Sun?
- We could not survive without the giant ball of fire that our planet revolves around, and so the stability of our sun is of the utmost importance. Unfortunately, it has started to behave very erratically lately.
- The Daily Mail reports: Incredible moment a colossal 74,500-mile-high ‘solar tornado’ swirls on the sun’s surface is captured by NASA
- The incredible moment a colossal ‘solar tornado’ that is 14 times larger than Earth swirls on the sun’s surface has been captured by NASA in a new video.
- The twister, composed of plasma and heat, measured more than 74,500 miles high and moved up to 310,000 miles per hour.
- A few weeks later, we witnessed an absolutely colossal coronal mass ejection that traveled away from the sun at a speed of “at least 3,000 kilometers per second”…
- IFL Science reports: Late on Monday, March 13, the Sun blasted out a coronal mass ejection (CME) traveling at at least 3,000 kilometers per second (6,700,000 miles per hour), possibly the fastest ever recorded. The expelled particles reached the Earth’s orbit in less than a day. Had they hit the Earth, the results could have been catastrophic, but fortunately the CME was directed almost directly opposite. However, the explosion is a reminder the next time we may not be so lucky.
