Some Coronal Mass Ejections are Caused by Shock Waves in Other Regions of the Sun
This press release examines evidence of a possible new triggering mechanism for coronal mass ejections (CMEs) from the Sun. Scientists using data from the Yohkoh and SOHO satellites noticed that interconnecting X-ray loops, as they disappeared, were followed by looplike CMEs that erupted off to one side.
