An international group of solar and space scientists have built the most complete picture yet of the full impact of a large solar eruption, using instruments on the ground and in space to trace its journey from the Sun to the Earth. Dr Mario Bisi of Aberystwyth University will present the team’s results, which include detailed images and a movie, on Tuesday 13th April at the RAS National Astronomy Meeting in Glasgow.

event studied by the team originated in the brighter active region slightly
