Class B solar flare to hit Earth later this week

A thread of magnetism near sunspot AR2846 erupted yesterday, causing a Class B solar flare and throwing a cloud of plasma into space.

Normally, the location of the explosion site (at the edge of the sun) rules out any impact on the Earth. However, the debris from the explosion flew apart.

NOAA analysts are assessing the possibility of a glancing blow to our planet later this week.
