Solar Tsnuami on Collision Course For Earth

The Sun's surface erupted early Sunday morning, blasting a wall of ionized atoms into interplanetary space on a collision course toward the Earth.
As a result, the Earth is bracing for a cosmic tsunami, which experts say is expected to hit early Wednesday morning.
-ADVERTISEMENT-Scientists say there is nothing we can do to avoid the geomagnetic storm, which may disrupt several satellites in its wake.
Despite the possible threats it may pose to several satellites, when the solar tsunami reaches Earth, it is expected to surge down our planet's magnetic field lines and illuminate our skies in a spectacular light show.
Fortunately, because the atmosphere will filter the radiation from the solar tsunami, the cosmic storm shouldn't pose a health hazard for observers on Earth.
