The most powerful cosmic fireball of the last 6 years, fired from a “gun muzzle” 20 times larger than the Earth without any astronomical observatory having had the time to recognize it and warn, caused the sky to change color.
According to Live Sciencea phenomenon that caused the night sky of the United States to change, from the northern states to southern Alabama and northern California, in the early morning of March 24.

It is Dawn, a form of aurora of rare color and intensitytriggered by a G4 geomagnetic storm, the strongest in the last 6 years in the United States.
What causes it is also an extremely mysterious object and as rare as the phenomenon it causes: crowning mass ejection (CME) “invisible”, That is, a ball of plasma with an extremely strong magnetic field is projected onto Earth from the Sun, but it is not as easy to observe as typical CMEs.
NASA and other leading space agencies – which have numerous observation devices from spacecraft around the Sun to terrestrial facilities – have not issued advance warnings about this geomagnetic storm.
American space weather forecaster Tamitha Skov said in the newspaper Space that no one can see the geomagnetic storm about to make landfall because of this “almost invisible”. This fireball started more slowly than typical CMEs, so it was difficult to observe.
It must be taken from a Sunspots – a shape “cosmic gun” specializes in shooting flares and fireballs – up to 20 times larger than Earth, which point directly at Earth.
Subsequent calculations showed that this CME was moving at a speed of 2.1 million km/h. This fireball collided strongly with the Earth’s magnetosphere in the early morning of March 24, US time, causing disruptions in the magnetic field, generating auroras, and causing shortwave radio blackouts for several hours in some locations, affecting navigation systems worldwide.
