A CME THAT JUST MISSED OUR PLANET SAVED THE EARTH FROM DISASTER
On 23 July 2012, a plasma cloud or "CME" rocketed away from the sun as fast as 3000 km/s, more than four times faster than a typical eruption. The storm tore through Earth orbit, but fortunately Earth wasn't there. Instead it hit the STEREO-A spacecraft. Researchers have been analysing the data ever since, and they have concluded that the storm was one of the strongest in recorded history.
Had the eruption occurred just one week earlier, the blast site would have been facing Earth, rather than off to the side, so it was a relatively narrow escape. Watch the video here
