WARNING: Hole opens up on Sun blasting Earth with SOLAR WINDS
WARNING : A HUGE hole has opened up on the surface of the sun, leaving the Earth vulnerable to solar winds which could cause making disruption to technology.
When magnetic field lines travel from the interior of the sun to its surface, they usually remain inside our star.
However, when coronal holes appear, which happens sporadically, the magnetic field lines can stretch out into space in the form of solar winds.
NASA posted a video on Instagram stating that an “elongated coronal hole rotated across the surface of the sun this past week so that it is now streaming solar wind towards Earth”.

Solar winds, which are a stream of particles from the sun, can heat the Earth’s outer atmosphere, causing it to expand.

Additionally, a surge of particles can lead to high currents in the magnetosphere, which can lead to higher than normal electricity in power lines, resulting in electrical transformers and power stations blow outs and a loss of power.
