Coronal mass ejections are a very intriguing part of solar physics.During filament eruptions, a large amount of hot plasma encapsulated in a magnetic field may be released. Coronal mass ejections will then drift throughout space and if it comes into contact with the Earth, then a Geomagnetic storm may ensue. If the revolution of the magnetic field lines of the CME is in parallel with the magnetic field lines of the Earth, then there will be a large amount of magnetic interference and power grids will be completely shut off.
