A huge solar flare known as coronal mass ejection (CME) has been observed by astronomers, but it is not known which side of the sun it comes from.
Since Sunday when it was first observed, astronomers do not yet know its origin in order to give a concrete announcement on whether or not it will hit the Earth.
In any case, if the explosion is heading towards Earth, then it's pretty bad.
"Some clues suggest farside, others Earthside. If it is an Earthside event, it could reach us late on June 28th or June 29th." according to SpaceWeather.com.
These huge solar flares like this can affect both us and our technology to a high level. For example, satellites can be hit, GPS can fall, and electricity and telecommunications can also be down. In short, all the modern technology that people have developed so far can be down in a few minutes if such an eruption hits us.
These have happened throughout history, but when the technology was not so advanced, so there was not as much damage as it could be now.
Let's hope that this eruption will not hit us and will not create damage.
