oh! No..! SOLAR Storm....!

Space weather starts at the sun.
 It begins with an eruption such as a huge burst of light and radiation called a solar flare or a gigantic cloud of solar material called a coronal mass ejection (CME)
The effects of those eruptions happen at Earth, or at least near-Earth space. Scientists monitor several kinds of space "weather" events -- geomagnetic storms, solar radiation storms, and radio blackouts – all caused by these immense explosions on the sun.
They cause wide disruptions in Radio communications, power blackouts but for the beautiful aurora.....
