Solar storm forecast to hit Earth on Wednesday: Solar ‘hole’ could intensify solar winds, weaken power grids and bring spectacular northern lights to northern regions
- Coronal holes on the surface of the Sun strengthen the solar wind toward Earth
- This issued a warning that a G1-class geomagnetic storm could hit Earth on Wednesday
- This is the lowest storm on a scale of 5 and may only dampen fluctuations in power grids and have only minor effects on satellites.
The United States has a solar storm warning on August 3, as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced that a G1-class geomagnetic storm could hit the planet.
G-1 storms can dampen fluctuations in power grids, affect satellites, and produce auroras in regions around the Arctic. In this case, we see electric colors in the skies of Canada and Alaska. However, it is the weakest of the five classified by NOAA.
Geomagnetic storms are due to coronal holes spewing “gaseous matter” in the southwestern region of the Sun’s disk.
Space weather engineer Mike Cook told DailyMail.com that the hole increased the speed of the solar wind by releasing it. He also said it is predicted to cause a G-1 condition, but “from the next 24 hours he needs to see if it will happen within the next 48 hours.”

The geomagnetic storm is due to a coronal hole (pictured) spewing “gaseous matter” in the southwestern region of the Sun’s face.
NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center classifies geometric storms into five stages. 1 is the weakest and 5 is the strongest.
This week’s set will have very little impact on satellites and technology on Earth. However, it can confuse mobile animals that use the Earth’s magnetic field as a navigation tool.
This is because geomagnetic storms induce currents in the magnetosphere and ionosphere as regions formed by the Earth’s magnetic field are compressed and disturbed.
There was also a C9.3 flare fired from the Sun on Sunday. C-class flares are small and rarely have a noticeable impact on Earth, but they are exciting to see.

However, this did not erupt on the side of the Sun facing Earth, but was captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, the spacecraft that has studied our massive star since its launch in 2010. exploded enough to be
The flare was filmed later on July 31st. This graph shows that the flare was picked up by the satellite.
If you were traveling at about 850 miles per hour, it would take you 169,090 hours to reach the sun.
“Yesterday’s C9.3 flare was from a region that’s technically not even on the disk facing the Earth yet. It’s just around NE.” [north eastern] limbs,” Cook told Dailymail.com.
“And solar flares themselves do not cause geomagnetic storms, only when a CME (Corona Mass Ejection) is associated with the direction of the flare and the Earth.
The serpentine filament is the CME, the massive ejection of plasma and magnetic field from the Sun’s corona (the outermost layer of the star’s atmosphere).
Earth experienced a solar storm on July 19th that brought spectacular auroras to the northern United States and Canada. The photo is an image of the Northern Lights in Seattle, Washington.
Earth experienced a solar storm on July 19th that brought spectacular auroras to the northern United States and Canada.
The storm made headlines over the weekend when Dr. Tamisa Skoff announced on Friday that she had discovered a “snake-like filament” on the surface of the Sun — and it was moving toward Earth’s strike zone.
The Northern Lights were seen early Friday morning just after the storm hit, filling the northern sky with stunning electric hues of purple and green.
Cook on July 19th DailyMail.com: “There have been some CMEs [coronal mass ejections] There is not only an eruption (a solar storm) in the last few days, but also a central disk, the coronal hole (a black hole-like structure).
“We should see the impact in the next two to three days.”
That’s right, the space show isn’t over yet – the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) says the G1 class is expected to impact Earth as early as Thursday through Friday. is shown.
