Extreme Space Weather In 2012 Resulted In Fastest Solar Wind Speed Ever Recorded
2014-03-19 05:25:02

[ Watch the Video: STEREO Captures Fastest CME to Date ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers have uncovered the origin and cause of an extreme space weather event that took place July 22, 2012 on the sun which generated the fastest solar wind speed ever recorded directly by a solar wind instrument. The formation of the powerful event showed remarkable features as a massive cloud of solar material erupted off the sun's right side, zooming out into...

NASA's Solar Observing Fleet Will Be Watching Comet ISON's Journey Around The Sun
2013-11-23 08:07:02

NASA It began in the Oort cloud, almost a light year away. It has traveled for over a million years. It has almost reached the star that has pulled it steadily forward for so long. On Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, 2013, Comet ISON will finally sling shot around the sun. Here its inward journey through the solar system will end -- either because it will break up due to intense heat and gravity of the sun, or because, still intact, it speeds back away, never to return. Catalogued as C/2012...

NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory Sees An Earth Directed Coronal Mass Ejection
2013-08-20 12:53:40

NASA On August 20, 2013 at 4:24 am EDT, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME, a solar phenomenon which can send billions of tons of particles into space that can reach Earth one to three days later. These particles cannot travel through the atmosphere to harm humans on Earth, but they can affect electronic systems in satellites and on the ground. Experimental NASA research models, based on observations from NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory...

Coronal Mass Ejection Witnessed By NASA's STEREO

NASA On July 22, 2013, at 2:24 a.m. EDT, the sun erupted with a coronal mass ejection or CME, a solar phenomenon that can send billions of tons of solar particles into space that can affect electronic systems in satellites. Experimental NASA research models based on observations from NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory, or STEREO, show that the CME was not Earth-directed, but may pass Mars.  It left the sun at around 715 miles per second, which is a fairly fast speed...

CME Headed Toward Mercury And Venus
2013-07-02 16:01:43

NASA On July 1, 2013, at 6:09 p.m. EDT, the sun erupted with a coronal mass ejection, or CME, a solar phenomenon that can send billions of tons of solar particles into space that can affect electronic systems in satellites. Experimental NASA research models based on NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory show that the CME was not Earth-directed and it left the sun at around 570 miles per second. The CME may, however, pass by NASA's Messenger, Spitzer and STEREO-B satellites, and...

Three Coronal Mass Ejections And A Solar Flare In Three Days On The Sun
2013-04-22 11:25:57

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA´s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) recorded a coronal mass ejection (CME) on Saturday April 20, 2013, at 2:54 a.m. EDT. That was only to be the first of three such events over the course of the weekend. CME´s, solar phenomena that send billions of tons of solar particles and radiation speeding through space at over 500 miles per second, have the potential to affect communication systems and electronics here and in...

Powerful Coronal Mass Ejection Erupts On Sun's Earth-Facing Side
2013-03-15 13:42:58

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A powerful solar eruption occurred on the surface of the sun at 2:54 a.m. (EDT) this morning. The eruption, called a coronal mass ejection (CME), occurred on the Earth-facing side of the sun and may have released billions of tons of solar particles into space racing their way toward Earth, potentially making impact within three days. Once particles from this CME event hit Earth, electrical systems in orbit, in the sky and on...
