Scientists Spot "Space Hurricane" Over North Pole

(Jinan, China) -- Researchers are detailing the very first space hurricane ever spotted above Earth.

It was actually captured by satellites back in 2014, but only recently uncovered by a team in China.

They say it was 600-miles-wide, "rained" electrons instead of water, had several spiral arms and lasted eight hours before fizzing out.  

Researchers believe space hurricanes could be a widespread phenomena due to plasma and magnetic fields in the universe.
