 A coronal mass ejection is detected from the star located 450 light years away from the Earth!  This phenomenon was marked by the intense flash of X-rays after the emission of a large bubble of plasma.This picture shows a coronal mass ejection or CME, which involves removing the material on a large scale, and often it is seen on our sun.  Using the Chandra X-ray Observatory, a new study first detected a CME from a star apart from us, which provides a novel insight into these powerful incidents.  As the name implies, these incidents occur in Corona, which is the outer atmosphere of a star.  This “Extrasolar” CME was observed to be emitted from a star called HR 9024, which is located approximately 450 light years away from the Earth.  It represents for the first time that researchers have identified a CME with a star other than our Sun and its feature.  This phenomenon was marked by an acute flash of X-ray after the emission of a huge bubble of plasma, i.e., the hot gas that contains the charge particles.
