Radiation from 'solar whip' on Sun to hit Earth today

Radiation from 'solar whip' on Sun to hit Earth today
NASA scientists have discovered an eight lakh kilometres long 'solar whip' on the surface of the Sun
and warned that some radiation from it is headed for Earth on Tuesday.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured a very long, whip-like solar filament in a long arc
above the sun's surface, the Daily Mail reported.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration spaceweather
prediction center estimates that a cloud of radiation from the
eruption will reach Earth today.
The radiation cloud will create a minor to moderate geomagnetic
storm, bringing the northern lights to parts of North America.
A 'solar whip' or filament is caused when a red glowing loop of
plasma erupts, releasing the plasma out in huge loops hundreds of
thousands of miles into space.
The image and video of the filament released by NASA covers
August 6 to 8, 2012.
"Towards the end of the video part of the filament seems to break away, but its basic length and
shape seem to have remained mostly intact," NASA said.
