Solar Storm will hit on Earth by Tomorrow

A solar storm will hit on Earth by Tomorrow. According to the Joint USAF/NOAA, Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for M-class flares and a slight chance for an X-class flare on days one, two, and three (July 19-21). This solar storm will arrive without any obstacle, but our GPS, radio blackouts, and cell communication are going to be influenced.

This week, many countries are burning with hot temperatures, and a solar storm is expected to be more dangerous to high-flying latitude airplane travelers and crews. Researchers and Scientists all over the world predict this solar storm has a strong flare, and it is striking Earth. NASA stated that the solar flare might have a huge impact on Earth’s geomagnetic field on the evening of July 19.

This solar flare explosion is likely caused due to the Sun’s discharge of protons. The G1-class solar storm on March 22 brought landfall a few days later. Solar radiation storms occur when a large-scale magnetic field eruption when coronal mass ejection (CME) and solar flare are associated. According to NOAA, The most important particles are protons which can get accelerated to large fractions of the speed of light. At these velocities, the protons can traverse the 150 million km from the sun to Earth in just 10 minutes or less. When they reach Earth, the fast-moving protons penetrate the magnetosphere that shield Earth from lower energy charged particles. Once inside the magnetosphere, the particles are guided down the magnetic field lines and penetrate into the atmosphere near the north and south poles.

SWPC currently forecasts the probability of S1 (Minor Radiation Storm scale) occurrence as part of our 3-day forecast and forecast discussion products and issues a warning for an expected S1 or higher event; as well as a warning for when the 100 MeV proton level is expected to reach 1 pfu. Additionally, SWPC issues alert for when each NOAA Space Weather Scale Radiation Storm level is reached (S1-S5) and/or when the 100 MeV protons reach 1 pfu.
