A space storm has been observed exploding from a central point in Earth’s upper atmosphere for the first time. The result could one day lead to better predictions of the storms, which can harm satellites and power grids on the ground.

The energy that powers space storms comes from clouds of plasma hurled at Earth by the sun. These clouds stretch our planet’s magnetic field like a rubber band, storing energy in a long magnetic tail behind our planet.
