Unprecedented solar storm

On Tuesday the Sun rejected an enormous amount of plasma which was then covered almost half of its surface, causing a powerful storm, reported Space.com.

“Sun has made ​​impressive rejection of protuberances with a sparkle and a projection of high energy particles. I have never seen a volume like this, ” said Alex Young, an astrophysicist at Goddard Space Flight Center in NASA, in an interview published today in The Sun.


The high energy particles advancing towards Earth at almost 5 million km / h. Their impact will not be important but it will still be felt in coming days.

Another feature of the projection is that the temperature of individual particles is extremely low, namely 80 000 ° C, while the temperature of the solar corona rises from 500,000 to several million degrees Celsius.
