      Sun Explodes! Target: Earth

      {}An explosion on the Sun Thursday is now headed toward earth.

      {}The blast was caught on camera by NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory.

      {}The M-9 class solar flare hurled a faint coronal mass ejection into space and straight towards earth.

      {}Fortunately, it's not expected to cause any significant problems, however earth-directed CME's can damage satellites and disrupt cellular or internet communications that depend upon them.

      {}It may not be over yet, though. Scientists say even more powerful flares could still erupt from the same sunspot that shot this one out.
