The Geomagnetic Storm On March 18 To Miss Earth

The Geomagnetic Storm On March 18 To Miss Earth

According to Newsweek, Lebedev Institute and NOAA have similar forecasts for March 18's geomagnetic activity, as the institutions are both expecting a "minor" magnetic storm on that day as the worst case scenario. These storms could turn out to be extremely unsafe because they can disrupt telecommunications, navigation, and electrical power around the Earth.

Charged, magnetic particles from the solar storm can interfere with machinery in Earth's orbit as well as at the planet's surface, such as GPS systems and radio signals.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an organization that predicts weather on Earth and space. That storm then can cause solar flares, a release of magnetic energy, and cause the Earth's aurora borealis to light up, bringing Northern Lights chasers joy all over the globe. This would merely be classified as a G1 storm, which would be the least intense type of event based on NOAA's geomagnetic storm scale, with G5 storms being the "most extreme" in nature.

These send a stream of electrical charges and magnetic fields towards the Earth at a speed of around 3,000mph.

"The storm is impressive by recent standards, but nowhere near the maximum intensities often generated at the height of the solar cycle".

A solar storm is actually expected to impact the Earth from March 14 to March 15, but it certainly isn't massive.

According to Wonderopolis, in February 2011, a CME produced a solar flare that "disrupted radio communications throughout China".

Others to pay tribute include Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. But he continued his theoretical work and was outspoken on many things over much of his life.

There will be a minor uptick in geomagnetic activity over the coming days, resulting in a G1 geostorm - an event that happens around 2,000 times every 11 years. "Aurora may be visible at high latitudes".

On the other hand, a solar storm can create a magical display of the northern and southern lights.

The strongest flares though can have an impact across the whole planet, triggering widespread radio blackouts and long-lasting storms - affecting Global Positioning System signals, radio communications and power grids.

But the cracks could also create awesome opportunities for stargazers to catch a better view of the Northern lights.

These explosions are known as solar flares which are sudden flashes of sun's increased brightness.

Just because this storm isn't up to the hype doesn't mean that solar storms in general should be ignored.
