Huge rays of sunlight towards the Earth! Geomagnetic storm is expected to cause chaos
A large solar flare is expected to cause geomagnetic storms on Earth in the coming days. Will these have a big impact? Know here.
A small part of Sun exploded and this massive energy in the form of solar flares is set to impact The earth Early! Solar flares are caused by an explosion of electromagnetic energy that occurs on face of the sun. “There is a prominence protruding from the southwest limb of the sun today. It’s so big, astronomers are struggling to squeeze it into a single image, “Space Weather reported. Now, these giant rays of sunlight are approaching the Earth at terrifying speed.
According to Space Weather, a large and deep volcanic canyon has erupted on the Sun, about 155,000 miles long and 15,500 miles deep, and it is expected to erupt. geomagnetic storm on the earth. A geomagnetic storm is a severe disturbance of the Earth’s magnetosphere that occurs when energy from the solar wind is transmitted very rapidly into the space environment around the earth.
These rays are expected to create a small G1-class geomagnetic storm possibly on July 20 or 21. The massive solar particles that create geomagnetic storms on Earth have been thrown. enter space by an unstable magnetic filament, which erupted on July 15, Space Weather said.
Will these geomagnetic storms have any impact on Earth? In general, several geomagnetic storms can cause radio blackouts, and even a strong geomagnetic storm can bring down the Internet and cell phone connections to the power grid. However, physicist Cameron Patterson of Lancaster University mentioned to Express.co.uk that such space weather disruptions could even generate electrical currents that could interfere with the functioning of systems. signal. For example, turning green signals red when there are no trains nearby! He added: “While we often associate these failures with rain, snow and leaves on the lines, you might not think that the Sun can also cause rail signals to malfunction. warned.
