A large release of plasma and magnetism from the Sun has been observed in satellite data. An explosion is known as a coronal mass ejection (CME) and occurs when magnetism becomes unstable on the surface of a star at the center of our solar system. CME has been spotted by NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft, with some claiming the launch looks like a Star Trek Doomsday machine.
Doomsday’s machine was a mechanical monster in space that had a large round hole and a long, pale tail.
Fortunately on Earth, CME was driven from the direction of Earth.
The astronomical website Space Weather said: “A machine-shaped corona mass ejection (CME) of a doomsday machine was launched away from the sun in the early hours of October 24.
“It will not hit the Earth. The source of the explosion was a thread of magnetism near the northeastern limb of the sun, which became unstable and exploded.”
If the storm had hit the Earth, it would probably have caused a glow at the North or South Pole.
Auroras are created when a stream of magnetic particles hits the Earth’s magnetic shield, deflecting it.
As the particles deflect, they create a stunning green and blue light show in the upper or lower echelons of the planet.
However, the consequences can be much more severe than the northern or southern lights.
Solar particles can expand the Earth’s atmosphere.

However, another major solar storm could occur, prompting researchers to urge politicians to invest in better infrastructure to observe our host star.
A recent study by the Institute of Science and Technology in Skolkovo, Russia, said: “A major solar storm could cut off electricity, television, internet and radio communications, leading to significant cascading effects in many areas of life.
“According to some experts, the damage from such an extreme event could cost up to several trillion dollars, and the recovery of infrastructure and the economy could take up to 10 years.
“In this way, understanding and predicting the most dangerous extreme events is paramount to protecting society and technology against global space hazards.”
