The sun’s dark plasma eruption is headed straight for Earth
On Sunday the sun ejected a cloud of "dark plasma"
which is expected to make contact with Earth on Wednesday perhaps causing a brief geometric Storm.
The explosion of material is known as a coronal mass ejection (CME) is a cloud of charged solar plasma and magnetic fields.
It was fired at Earth on August 14 from an area of the sun known as AR3076
Observations from NASA solar dynamics observatory
Indicate the instant the CME was released from the sun's surface.
It shows as a short black cloud towards the conclusion of the movie at roughly 11:30 UT.
