If the sun is plucked out of the solar system and thrown away, all the planets will instantly start traveling in a straight line. The gravity "field" is instantaneous. Does the electric field associated with an electron and the magnetic field generated by the movement of an electron appear and disappear instantaneously as well. I am assuming in this case the electron stops instantly or the electron disappears instantly like plucking the sun out of the solar system.
