Heads Up! Incoming Solar Wind Could Wreak Havoc, Effect Power Grids Across Earth
A giant fissure has opened across the sun and is spewing rapid solar winds toward our planet.
This coronal hole is a vast region where the sun’s magnetic field tears apart, allowing solar wind to escape.
Super-charged solar winds flowing from the sun’s atmosphere are expected to reach Earth on April 23 or 24.
According to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this could whip up a “moderately strong” geomagnetic storm.
But a storm of this magnitude could have an effect on power grids and navigation systems across the Earth’s surface.
