Researchers Use NASA and Other Data to Look Into the Heart of a Solar Storm
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Sep 01, 2014
A space weather storm from the sun engulfed our planet on Jan. 21, 2005. The event got its start on Jan. 20, when a cloud of solar material, a coronal mass ejection or CME, burst off the sun and headed toward Earth. When it arrived at our planet, the ring current and radiation belts surrounding Earth swelled with extra particles, while the aurora persisted for six hours. Both of these are usually signs of a very large storm - indeed, this was one of the largest outpouring of solar protons ever mon ... read more
