Akula I am intreeged by the occurance you described. As far as I am aware a coronal mass ejection (CME) which is the plasma ejected by the sun would not reach ground level as some kind of cloud. The magnetosphere surounding the earth protects the planet from all but the most savier of these CME's. Any plasma (ionised gas) that gets through the magnetosphere (a geomagnetic storm) would follow the earths magnetic field lines until they met another magnetic force. In the past such geomagnetic stroms have disrupted power stations which create a magnetic field but I have never heard of 1 directley hitting a town and causing such damage.

Have you any more information regarding this subject.

Cheers sharkstooth
