Earth magnetic field


Illustration of Earth's magnetic field which looks a little like a sideways jellyfish. The jellyfish "tail" is known as the magnetotail and it flows off to the right in this picture, away from the sun on the "night side" of Earth. NASA's IBEX mission recently captured the first images of the magnetotail and the plasma sheet. Credit: ESA/C. T. Russel
