A CME is a huge expulsion of plasma from the Sun’s outer layer, which is called the corona. The storm could impact Earth at 5pm BST (12pm ET) today. This is according to the Met Office and the US’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Earth’s magnetic field helps to protect us from the more extreme consequences of solar flares.
