Default NASA - actual video clip - solar storm envelopes Earth

Solar activity is in the increase, affecting not only Earth but Mars and other planets.

And you were worried about climate change created by human?

------------------------------
Partial NASA release ...

CMEs are billion-ton clouds of solar plasma launched by the same explosions that spark solar flares. When they sweep past our planet, they can cause auroras, radiation storms, and in extreme cases power outages. Tracking these clouds and predicting their arrival is an important part of space weather forecasting.

“We have seen CMEs before, but never quite like this,” says Lika Guhathakurta, program scientist for the STEREO mission at NASA headquarters. “STEREO-A has given us a new view of solar storms.”

STEREO-A is one of two spacecraft launched in 2006 to observe solar activity from widely-spaced locations. At the time of the storm, STEREO-A was more than 65 million miles from Earth, giving it the “big picture” view other spacecraft in Earth orbit have been missing.

Complete NASA release and video clip .. you need a media player to watch it .. VLC media player is my choice ...
