NOAA issues geomagnetic storm alert due to potential solar storm triggered by solar wind on March 9

Recently, Earth was struck by an M-class solar flare, leading to a G2-class geomagnetic storm. This event comes as solar activity increases during solar cycle 25, expected to reach its peak this year. The planet has experienced a surge in solar phenomena such as solar particles, CMEs, solar flares, solar storms, and geomagnetic storms in recent months, with more expected. A geomagnetic storm alert has been issued, potentially causing a solar storm. Geomagnetic storm alert According to a Spaceweather.com report, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecasters have issued a minor…

Learn about the potential G1-class geomagnetic storm that could be triggered by a CME on March 2

During the final week of February, the Sun became highly active and emitted three powerful X-class solar flares within a 24-hour period. One of these flares, the most intense since 2017, marked the peak of the current solar cycle 25. With solar activity expected to increase as we approach the cycle’s peak, experts are warning of potential CMEs, filament eruptions, solar storms, solar flares, and geomagnetic storms. Forecasters have issued a warning about a possible geomagnetic storm on March 2 due to a CME, urging the public to stay informed.…

Feel the Force: Solar Winds Could Create a Geomagnetic Storm on Earth!

As we approach the peak of solar cycle 25, the ongoing surge of solar activity persists. A solar cycle, lasting 11 years, involves fluctuations in the Sun’s activity. The lowest point, referred to as the solar minimum, is when activity is at its lowest, while the solar maximum represents the period of highest activity. With the solar maximum drawing near, experts anticipate an increase in CMEs, sunspots, solar flares, and solar storms that Earth may encounter. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which includes a full suite of instruments for observing…

Stunning Northern Lights Displayed as CME Causes Geomagnetic Storm

In recent months, the Sun’s activity has been steadily increasing and is projected to rise further as we approach the solar maximum. This phase marks the peak of solar activity, leading to a higher occurrence of solar flares, CMEs, solar storms, and geomagnetic storms. These solar events possess the capacity to inflict harm on our planet. Particularly vulnerable are technological devices, which face the risk of power outages and disruptions in radio communication during such occurrences. A few days ago, the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) of the National Oceanic…

Scotland Experiences Rare Red Auroras due to CME-Induced Geomagnetic Storm

Solar activity has been steadily increasing in recent months and is predicted to continue rising as the Sun approaches its solar maximum. As a result, Earth is at risk of being affected by CMEs, solar storms, geomagnetic storms, and other solar phenomena as the peak of the Sun’s 11-year solar cycle approaches. Therefore, it is crucial that we closely monitor the Sun’s volatile behavior for any potential threats to our planet. Surprisingly, the current solar cycle has surpassed scientists’ expectations, with the number of sunspots already exceeding the total predicted…

Sunspots can spew X-class solar flares! A geomagnetic storm is on the cards

With just five months to go until 2023, we’ve already seen harmful solar activity bombard the Earth. Just last month, the looming coronal mass ejection cloud, which erupted from a sunspot 20 times the size of Earth, hit the planet and triggered a terrifying solar storm. This was later declared the most destructive solar storm in six years. It was sudden and unexpected. Solar activity has been on the rise for the past few months and is expected to continue increasing until solar maximum, the period of greatest solar activity…
