Solar storm: 'Brightest and fastest' CME from the Sun to 'sideswipe' Earth tomorrow

The website said: “Minor G1-class geomagnetic storms are possible on June 1 when a CME is expected to sideswipe Earth’s magnetic field.”

The CME was caught on camera by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory spacecraft, “hurled into space” by the sunspot AR2824.

Sunspots, which are dark blotches on the Sun’s surface where the magnetic field causes temperatures to drop, can erupt into CMEs.

SpaceWeather added: “This is one of the brightest and fastest CMEs of new Solar Cycle 25.
