NASA detects a burst in the sun and tons of plasma flew into space
NASA said space explorers to be alert late Tuesday and Wednesday by a solar flare caused on Sunday that can produce spectacular aurora borealis.
An eruption on the surface of the Sun, which erupted and blasted tons of plasma (ionized atoms) in space was detected in the solar laboratory of NASA, the Solar Dynamics Observatory.
The plasma is approaching our planet and when it clash with the north and south poles of the Earth’s magnetosphere will produce a diffuse but predominantly light projected onto the ionosphere known as aurora borealis.
According to the astronomer Leon Golub, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CFA), the rash goes right to us, and is expected to arrive early on August 4. It is the first major eruption directed toward Earth in a long time.
