Scientists at NASA have released some incredible images revealing an enormous dark hole over our sun.

Corey Powell, Editor of Discover Magazine, joined Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom this morning to explain the giant black hole, and what it means for us here on Earth.

“The reason it’s dark is that whole chunk of the sun basically ripped off, blew out and is coming our way at about two million miles an hour,” said Powell.

Well, that doesn’t sound good. Powell explained that this phenomenon happens frequently, but we don’t often see something this large.

He said that when the chunk of the sun hits Earth, it would cause auroras, and would wiggle the magnetic field. The major concern would be potential disruptions to GPS signals and interference with communication satellites and power lines.

  1. That’s all? That’s all that would happen? But what about “where” it hits??? Wouldn’t it destroy by fire cities, towns, etc.? Doesn’t sound like they’re making a big deal out of it! I don’t like the sound of that!!!
