Medicine & TechnologyGeomagnetic storms or also known as solar storms are space weather events that come in the form of solar coronal mass ejections, causing disruptions to Earth's magnetic field. So, how does it cause Northern lights to appear?
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory caught a rare video of CMEs in heavy ultraviolet light emitted from the Sun's coronal region. The 'awesome star' video shows billions of hypersonic particles ejected out into space.
New clues have recentlly revealed the mechanisms behind the Rosetta eruption. They could help researchers solve the long-lasting mystery of what's causing the powerful and unpredictable eruptions of the Sun.
Scientists reveal that on June 2nd approximately 1300 UHT, a coronal mass ejection originating from the sun on May 28th brushed on the Earth's atmosphere. The minimal impact wasn't enough to cause damage or alter the solar wind speed circumnavigating the planet.
NASA scientists thought that flurry images that look like snow are actually fast moving energetic particles, which NASA calls solar radiation storm that hit an instrument on Solar and Heliospheric Observatory on Oct. 29, 2015.
