SOHO and Hinode Offer New Insight Into Solar Eruptions
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Jan 28, 2015
The sun is home to the largest explosions in the solar system. For example, it regularly produces huge eruptions known as coronal mass ejections - when billions of tons of solar material erupt off the sun, spewing into space and racing toward the very edges of the solar system. Scientists know that these ejections, called CMEs, are caused by magnetic energy building up on the sun, which suddenly releases. But the details of what causes the build up and triggers the release are not precisely understood. ... read more

Sun's rotating magnetic field may pull lightning toward Earth
The push and pull of the sun's magnetic field may encourage lightning strikes by bending the Earth's own magnetic field, allowing an influx of electric particles. Over a five-year period, researchers at the University of Reading recorded a 50 percent increase in lightning strikes when the Earth's magnetic shield was manipulated by the sun. ... more
