A "long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere...erupted out into space" on 31 Aug 2012. This coronal mass ejection (CME) "did not travel directly toward Earth, but did connect with Earth's" magnetosphere. The CME "traveled at over 900 miles per second" [4096x4096]
