Explosion on the sun - level 3
NASA has released a time-lapse video showing a spectacular solar eruption known as a coronal mass ejection or CME.
The massive rolling solar wave can shoot over a billion tons of particles into space at over a million miles per hour. Particles from these types of eruptions have been known to affect satellites and electronic fields. However, this latest ejection is not said to be heading our way.
Interesting words: time-lapse video (video which is speeded up), spectacular (very impressive), coronal (connected to a circle of light that is around the sun), ejection (moment when you suddenly send something out), particle (very small piece)
