Massive Solar Storm Heading Towards Earth After Giant Hole Appears in Sun
A massive, gaping hole has ripped through the sun, reportedly 20 times larger than the Earth, according to data by NASA astronomers.
This is the second ‘coronal hole’ to appear in a week, and is unleashing 1.8-million-mile-per-hour solar winds towards Earth. It will reportedly impact Earth on Friday.
“The current coronal hole, the big one right now, is about 300,000 to 400,000 kilometers across,” Alex Young from NASA Goddard’s Heliophysics Science Division told Insider. “That is about 20-30 Earths lined up back-to-back.”
