The planet Earth will be hit by a solar storm this week that might cause a power off and a spectacular view of Northern Lights in some places.
NASA Heliophysicist Dr. Liz MacDonald talked to Science World Report about the aurora borealis, her citizen-science project Aurorasaurus, and her love for all things space weather.
In a recent study, researchers unearthed new findings on the explosive nature of magnetic reconnection, which is changing how scientists examine this astrophysical process and is shedding new light on the mechanical properties behind solar flares and geomagnetic storms.
A massive coronal hole in our sun has been captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. Now, this hole is causing some auroral displays on Earth.
On Monday, the sun unleashed a mid-level solar flare, which peaked at around 2:23 EDT. Yet this flare has had further repercussions. It's helped launch a massive geomagnetic storm on Earth.
