Sun spits filaments out from ‘canyon of fire’ as aurora forecast remains strong

Filaments of plasma escaped from a fiery canyon that opened on the sun’s surface on Sunday (April 3) releasing powerful streams of magnetized solar wind that might bring more auroras to Earth later this week. 

According to Space Weather, the “canyon of fire” is at least 12,400 miles (20,000 kilometers) deep and 10 times as long.
