Latest Coronal mass ejection Stories
NASA said that the sun emitted a mid-level solar flare on Tuesday that has the potential of causing some radio blackouts. The solar flare reached a classification of M6, which falls into the weakest flares that are still able to cause some space weather effects near Earth.
Media representatives are invited to attend a ceremony to announce the renaming of NASA's Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RBSP).
On Thursday, October 25, NASA's twin Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) program celebrated its sixth anniversary orbiting the sun, the US space agency announced on Friday.
NASA said its Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured the sun erupting with an X1.8 class solar flare on Monday.
A giant super-hot wave of solar plasma larger than the planet Earth erupted from the Sun at 4:15 a.m. EDT and was caught in amazing high-definition detail by a NASA spacecraft.
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.
