Massive Solar Storm Incoming!

Must Read

A strong solar storm is expected on July 23rd when a full-halo coronal mass ejection (CME) wit hit earth and its magnetic field. The solar storm is expected to be of G3 class and may cause radio blackouts and GPS disruptions. I can also cause damage to satellites in the higher orbit of Earth.

A geomagnetic storm is a major disturbance of Earth’s magnetosphere that occurs when there is a very efficient exchange of energy from the solar wind into the space environment surrounding Earth.

The full halo CME is caused by a solar tsunami – a massive eruption on the surface of the sun which released waves of magnetic flux and solar particles directed towards Earth.

According to spaceweather.com, Geomagnetic storms are possible on July 23rd when a full-halo CME is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field. The storm cloud was hurled toward Earth yesterday by a solar tsunami eruption. NOAA forecasters say that G1- to G2-class (minor to moderate) storms are likely with a slight chance of escalating to category G3 (strong).

A NASA model of the approaching cloud pinpoints the impact within a few hours around 4:00 am Mauritius time on July 23rd.
