Global Eruption Rocks the Sun: Scientists Re-Evaluate Ideas About Solar Storms

Astronomers found out that on August 1, 2010 a hemisphere of the sun erupted and filaments of magnetism exploded and hot gas was sent into space. They figured out that solar storms can affect our Earth through the magnetism. This would help people predict the weather on Earth, which could help forecasters. The astronomers and scientists really believe this is a breakthrough that they figured out the solar storms can affect our Earth's weather. They think that it will help many different people out like the airline companies, who can now predict the weather in a more accurate fashion. I think that this is very interesting and it would be so helpful to know the weather. I feel like they are always so wrong about the weather and it can ruin games, plans, etc. It would be excellent to have a more accurate forecast.
