In a recent report NASA has revealed that a monstrous coronal hole (low-density regions of the Sun’s atmosphere), measuring more than ten percent of the Sun’s surface area, has opened up on our star, the sun.
The footage was captured May 17 and 19 by the US space agency’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.
Coronal holes are areas on the Sun where the solar magnetic field extends up and out into interplanetary space, sending solar material speeding out in a high-speed stream of solar wind.
Sometimes these winds interact with the Earth’s magnetic field, creating a geomagnetic storm, which can expose satellites to radiation and interfere with communications signals.
Here’s more on this breaking report…
