Washington, March 14 ( ANI ): The sun recently erupted with two coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and ESA and NASA's Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) have captured images of the events.
Among specific topics are understanding the differences in three consecutive large flares, the nature of prominence bubbles and plumes, the inversion of physical parameters in solar coronal magnetic structures, coronal mass ejections as a result of magnetic helicity accumulation, and dynamic features of the current sheet associated with the 2010 August 19 solar flare.
The flare was accompanied by a coronal mass ejection, a huge burst of solar wind that throws massive quantities of electromagnetic radiation into space.
He added: "Yesterday there was a coronal mass ejection which should impact with us tonight and tomorrow night but with the cloud cover tonight it'll be no use though tomorrow night looks like you could get some amazing views.
