solar eruption

Schrijver and Title, both of whom are Lockheed-Martin solar physicists, explained that the so-called "Great Eruption" consisted of over a dozen shock waves, flares, filament eruptions, and coronal mass ejections that covered half of the sun's surface and took place over a period of 28 hours.

"The August 1st event really opened our eyes," said Schrijver, according to NASA. "We see that solar storms can be global events, playing out on scales we scarcely imagined before."
