200,000-kilometer-long magnetic solar filament might hurl severe flares toward Earth
Lately, the Sun appears to be excessively active. Warnings of X-class solar flares were rampant only a few days ago. Now, an enormous 200,000km long magnetic filament has snapped out from the southern hemisphere of the star. The remnant debris from this blast could be headed toward Earth. Observatories reveal that Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) have erupted from the same site.
