A second giant hole 20 times larger than Earth has ripped through the surface of the sun and is unleashing 3 million km/h solar winds toward our planet. ‘Coronal holes are magnetically open areas that are one source of high-speed solar wind,’ NASA said. ‘They appear dark when viewed in many wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light, such as seen here. At times, the solar wind can generate aurora at higher latitudes on Earth.’ 

But relax — like the rest of James Shaw’s pseudo-scientific scaremongering, it might sound alarming but the holes’ effects are usually harmless, although satellite communications and high-altitude radio transmissions can sometimes be temporarily disrupted.
