Solar Storm: NASA snaps huge ejection from Sun heading to Earth at 1,900 miles-per-second

Debris from the blast made up the core of a coronal mass ejection (CME), a large expulsion of plasma and magnetic field from the Sun’s corona, that was captured by NASA’s STEREO-A spacecraft and the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) in a stunning image. Now, experts saw the CME snapped by NASA and SOHO could deliver a ”glancing blow” to the Earth’s magnetic field on November 28. According to the US Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), CMEs can reach the planet at speeds between 250 km per second and 3,000 km per second. CME’s can also push geomagnetic storms straight into contact with Earth. Astronomers at SpaceWeather.com explained: “A geomagnetic storm is a major disturbance of Earth’s magnetosphere that occurs when there is a very efficient exchange of energy from …
