CME Week: The Difference Between Flares and CMEs
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Sep 25, 2014
There are many kinds of eruptions on the sun. Solar flares and coronal mass ejections both involve gigantic explosions of energy, but are otherwise quite different. The two phenomena do sometimes occur at the same time - indeed the strongest flares are almost always correlated with coronal mass ejections - but they emit different things, they look and travel differently, and they have different effects near planets. Both eruptions are created when the motion of the sun's interior contorts its own ... read more
