Large and small scale solar eruptions might all be triggered by a single process, according to new research that leads to better understanding of the Sun’s activity.
Our ever-changing sun continuously shoots solar material into space. The grandest such events are massive clouds that erupt from the sun, called coronal mass ejections, or CMEs.
A monster version of our sun has been found, the largest known member of the family of yellow stars to which our sun belongs.
In addition to the constant emission of warmth and light, our sun sends out occasional bursts of solar radiation that propel high-energy particles toward Earth.
Researchers at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) announced that they had seen a water snow line in a young planetary disc for the first time, helped along by a heated outburst from the infant solar system’s star, V883 Orionis.
Coronal Holes in our sun; is it something we should be worried about, or is it a natural phenomenon?
