Powerful magnetic waves, called the Magnetosphere, radiate from the sun until they weaken and become the Solar Wind. Planet Earth is over 90 million miles from the Sun. When the magnetosphere collides with Earth’s atmosphere, we see the Aurora Borealis. Occasionally the Moon is aligned between the Earth and Sun, eclipsing our view of the sun; briefly darkening the sky and showing the sun’s Corona as a ring “around” the Moon.
