DAILY RECORD: A blast of violent space weather is due to hit the Earth today following a massive explosion on the Sun.

It is likely to spark spectacular displays of the northern lights.

Scientists witnessed a huge flare above a giant sunspot the size of our planet, linked to an even larger eruption across the surface of the Sun.

By chance, the explosion faced directly towards Earth, sending a solar tsunami racing 93million miles across space.

Experts estimate the wave of supercharged gas will reach us today when it will buffet the natural magnetic shield protecting Earth.
