Scientists of NASA have detected a flash of light from across the Galaxy so powerful that it bounced off the Moon and lit up the Earth's upper atmosphere.

According to a NASA report, the magnetosphere is frequently buffeted by solar winds exuded by the Sun. These winds produce and carry their own magnetic fields. When magnetic fields collide and realign in space, it causes an invisible explosion called a magnetic reconnection. NASA recently recorded this phenomenon for the first time using four of its Magnetospheric Multiscale mission spacecraft.
