Aurora Borealis Lighting Up Night Sky All Week Due To Severe Solar StormA second strong solar storm this week is predicted to slam Earth Wednesday, causing fluctuations in the power grid and GPS while sparking bright auroras across the world.
Strong Solar X-Ray Radiation Hits Earth, Impacting Some Radio Communication For Entire HemisphereAs if powerful earthquakes, a small South Pacific tsunami yesterday, and a new undersea volcano off the Pacific coast weren't enough, today a massive dose of solar radiation was detected hitting earth.
NASA To Study Mysterious 'Magnetic Explosions' Between Earth, Sun That Unleash Dangerous X-RaysEarth and the Sun may be 93 million miles apart, but cosmic explosions between the two celestial spheres occur often and with devastating effects--unleashing waves of radiation and disrupting GPS communications, and it is with this danger in mind that next month, NASA will launch four "Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission" satellites, studying these "magnetic reconnections" and better predicting the consequences of these cosmic phenomena.
Massive Solar Flares Continue, Amazing Ultraviolet Image Captured By NASA Solar ObservatoryFrom the surface of the sun, massive solar flares have been exploding out several million miles into space over the past few weeks, with the latest blast coming on November 5th at 1:47 a.m. Pacific time.
X-Class Solar Flare, 4th Major Eruption On The Sun This Week DetectedSomeone sure upset the sun, because it's throwing amazing amounts of radiation out in four solar flares this week, with an X3-class solar flare Friday.
Massive Solar X-Ray Eruption Hits Earth, Potentially Disrupts GPS And Airplane, Ship CommunicationsA massive solar flare flooded the sunlit portion of the planet Tuesday morning with X-rays powerful enough to disrupt GPS navigation, and airplane and maritime communication for several minutes.
