Latest Coronal mass ejection Stories
At 10:23 pm EDT on September 27, 2012, NASA's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory captured an image of a particularly wide coronal mass ejection that erupted from the Sun.
After forty long years of debates and theories and counter-theories, the community of solar physics scientists has still failed to come to a consensus about what causes the sun's powerful coronal mass ejections.
Astronomers reported in The Astrophysical Journal they have a better understanding of the temperatures of the coronal cavities in Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs).
The sun sent off another coronal mass ejection (CME) last week, but this time the plasma burst showed up in the form of a light bulb.
Predicting solar flares still remains a hit-or-miss task for scientists, but new research may shed more light on helping to predict just when the events could occur.
NASA's STEREO spacecraft has observed the fastest coronal mass ejection (CME) ever seen on the Sun.
Scientists are warning that power grids, communications and satellites could be knocked out by a massive solar storm within the next two years.
A light bulb-shaped eruption leaps from the Sun and blasts into space in this archival image from the ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, SOHO.
A coronal mass ejection associated with a solar flare emitted early Thursday morning is unlikely to reach Earth, but it could affect one of the two STEREO satellites currently orbiting the sun.
