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.

Magnetic loops in the solar corona, solar flares and coronal mass ejections are among the phenomena that scientists still cannot fully explain.
Coronal mass ejections are explosive events in which billions of tonnes of solar plasma are thrown into space.
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.
Dr Li added: "We don't yet know what causes these coronal mass ejections and that is really what we hope to discover.
The eruption, known as a coronal mass ejection, led to a "massive amount of solar particles heading towards Earth".
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.
