A breathtaking scene a "plasma waterfall" could swallow 8 planets and cut off electricity from Earth

Experts warn that if one of these plasmas hits the Earth, it will disable electronic equipment across the planet

Images exposed by scientists interested in astronomical phenomena, as well as the researchers themselves, were shocked, as the pictures documented a "plasma waterfall" about 100,000 kilometers high above the surface of the sun, according to the Daily Mail, quoting an Argentine astrophysicist.

Argentine astronomer Eduardo Schaberger-Poppo captured the glow known as a "polar crown prominence" or PCP.

The plasma rose 100,000 kilometers (60,000 miles) above the surface of the sun, which is high enough to swallow 8 planets, before being pulled down by the star's magnetic extension.

"On my computer screen, it looked like hundreds of plasma filaments were shooting down the wall. It was truly a sight that left me speechless," Bobo said.

Experts warn that if the plasma explodes away from the sun and hits the Earth, it could end up cutting the planet's power grid.

The phenomenon of "polar crown prominences" or the solar waterfall occurs when a large, bright body of gas extends above the surface of the sun.

It is located near the poles of the sun, where the plasma tends to be cooler and less turbulent, and sometimes areas with strong magnetism may accumulate, which leads to an increase in the density of plasma and gases, causing dark filaments to appear on the surface of the sun.

This powerful magnetic field could collide with another, causing plasma to erupt outward and create a "plasma waterfall".

Experts report that the effect is common and can last for days or weeks before subsiding, but if plasma escapes from the sun's surface, it could cause blackouts on Earth.

Bobo said he rushed to take a photo of the flame from his garden in Santa Fe, Argentina, on March 9 after hearing about it on the news.

And he disclosed: “I knew that it would be difficult to photograph because of the intense heat wave and drought in my area, which causes a lot of turbulence and dust in the atmosphere, which makes it difficult to capture the sun with high accuracy. But I was determined to get a good shot, so I quickly prepared My equipment is in my backyard and I used the most powerful telescope to get a better view."

And he additional: “The division I saw on my CPU screen was really wonderful, as being able to observe those hundreds of plasma filaments falling on a wall 100,000 kilometers high left me literally speechless. I spent about two hours taking pictures, trying to find Moments of stability in the atmosphere to get the best possible result."

In rare cases, the magnetic forces may become so strong that the hot plasma erupts away from the sun and travels into space, in what is called a coronal mass ejection (CME).

What if one of these plasmas hit the Earth?

Experts warn that if one of these plasmas hits the Earth, it will disable electronic equipment across the planet.

This last happened in 1859 when telegraph systems worldwide failed catastrophically and the aurora borealis extended as far south as Colombia.

Operatives at the time testified receiving electric shockwaves from their devices, telecommunication paper holding fire, and being able to operate some devices with the series disconnected.

Experts say it can prevent electricity from working by disrupting the Earth's magnetic field.

This arose after NASA has taken the moment when a powerful solar flash exploded from the seeming of the sun. The powerful X-class flare, which can be ten times the size of Earth, was free from the surface of the sun at 12:52 pm ET on March 3. It was so strong that it caused temporary shortwave radio outages in North and South America.

The explosion, which lasted seven minutes, was emitted from a sunspot located in the upper right region of the sun.
