Massive solar flare to hit earth tomorrow

A huge solar storm is heading for Earth, and it's likely to hit tomorrow.

The storm could knockout satellites, disrupt power supplies and spark stunning displays of the Northern Lights.

It was created last week by an enormous explosion in the sun's atmosphere known as a solar flare, and charged particles from that flare are now on their way to our planet.

The arrival of the solar storm coincides with the formation of 'equinox cracks' in Earth's magnetic field, which some scientists believe form around the equinoxes on March 20 and September 23 each year.

These cracks weaken our planet's natural protection against charged particles and could leave commercial flights and GPS systems exposed to the incoming storm.

The cracks also mean stargazers are more likely to catch glimpses of the Northern lights this week.

This may include parts of Scotland and northern England, as well as the 'northern tier' of the US including parts of Michigan and Maine.

Sweet!   Thanx for the heads up in the northern lights

Stephen Hawking's ghost?

Sweeet, hope it causes a global pandemic and the population gets culled.

 

What time will it hit and what side of the earth will be exposed?

Do I need to wrap my porn hard drive in tin foil?

Well I'm fucked. I've been reading a shit ton of emp/solar flare shit for months.

What could you be reading for months?


You could have read for a half hour and then got to work on a faraday cage.

X class flare?

Just a shit load of different fiction stuff.

It's the worst case scenario for the world.

We're in the middle of a solar minimum, the storm is a mild one, with no coronal mass ejections earthbound. Minor if no noticeable interruptions, and yusss hopefully them northern lights are gonna be amazing. 

If the storm is happening now then it'll be over by the time your equinox thingy starts. 

I dont know if they started using a different system for classifying solar flares. Just looked this one up and its a g-1 which is the lowest on the scale, with g-5 being the highest.

Most of the stuff Ive read had the government knowing horrible shit was coming and not telling the public, but on a global scale, most governments would give a warning.

Dont worry its just that faggot Tien.

The end is here!

Wonder what site OP got this from? Idk man, the use of the words "charged particles" and "equinox cracks" dont sound too scienc-y to me. 

I could be wrong. 

But isn't a geomagnetic storm when nuclear winds get trapped inside earths magnetosphere? Those could cause problems with satelite and communications. But not nearly on the same scale of if the CME were directed right towards earth then yes there would be a large event that would be diary worthy for a lot of you. 

 

Sorry if i came off crabby. Uncles tired.

I learned that a solar flare is made from an explosion in the sun's atmosphere called a solar flair.
