What about this cause?
Space Weather News for April 25, 2014
X-FLARE: On April 25th, an active region near the sun's western limb
erupted, producing an impulsive X-class solar flare. A pulse of extreme UV
radiation from the flare ionized Earth's upper atmosphere and caused a
shortwave radio blackout on the dayside of Earth. However, a CME hurled
into space by the explosion will miss our planet. Check
