On Sunday July 23rd, a spectacular CME emerged from the farside of the sun.
The family isn’t close.
Nooooo, says a NASA spokesman.
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.
