Explosion on the sun causes blackouts near Australia and Asia
Briefly

An explosion on the sun released a massive plume of energized particles soaring 900,000mph through space that triggered blackouts in Australia and South Asia.
Reports surfaced Tuesday morning that noted ham radio operators and mariners had been disrupted around the two targets.
NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center shows there is a 45 percent chance of more communication disruptions in the coming days.
Physicists noted that the explosion was an M-class flare, which can cause small (R1) to moderate (R2) radio blackouts on the daylight side of the Earth.
