Solar Storm Will Strike Earth Tonight, ‘Weak Power Grid Fluctuations’ Possible

    The NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center forecasts an aurora could light up the sky above areas in the United State including Michigan and Maine.  A solar storm, which occurred Monday, is expected to strike Earth tonight.

    On Monday, the sun spit out a slew of charged particles in a moderate solar flare. These particles are now making their way towards Earth. The planet’s magnetic field will block most of the particles, but some will make it into Earth’s atmosphere. The particles collect at the north and south poles and interact with atmospheric gases to create the aurora borealis or the Northern Lights. And some say this show could be quite spectacular.

    Solar flares have been known to cause power grid failures, but it looks like we’ll only get the light show this time. Although a grid failure is possible, it is unlikely.

    According to Seeker, the forecast calls for a high probability of a G-1 or “minor” storm, which could strengthen to a G-2 or “moderate” storm depending on how the stream of particles hit the Earth. Geomagnetic storms are ranked on a scale, with G at the bottom, R in the middle, and S as the most severe. Forecasts now say the particles will give our planet a glancing blow.

    Although this storm has been categorized as “G-1,” which means it is minor, it could still cause some havoc down on Earth. Solar flares and particle ejections are associated with sunspots — dark areas on the sun’s surface — that host intense magnetic activity. As the magnetic fields in a sunspot cross, NASA stated, this can cause a sudden energy explosion, also known as a solar flare. This sends radiation out into space, and that radiation can be hurled toward the Earth.

    G1-level storms, such as Monday’s, may affect migratory animals, and can cause “weak power grid fluctuations.” The barrage of particles may even have a minor impact on satellites.  A gird failure would almost immediately fling the United States into a state of panic, and it’s always good to be prepared just in case. But it doesn’t look like there will be any serious damage to the power grid because of this storm as of right now.

        So we’re not doing a violent cage rattle. Just a slight shake. Gotsta stay keep you on your toes you know.

          Yawn, call me when it is a X Class Flare, 25 or above.

          The Carrington Event is believed to have been a X-59.

            This aint shit. I have seen way bigger ones that did nothing…

              “SOLAR STORM TO HIT TONIGHT”

              When a solar storm hits, isn’t it the sunny side that gets fried, the nighttime side just gets to see pretty aurora?

        What time I wonder

        • Heartless

          John, Suspicious Observers report this is the 2nd in a quick series (the 1st shot out on the just before 3:12 on the 12th/Monday). The impact is sometime today or tomorrow. Leads me to think late tonight. This 2nd CME is just that – mass – and the preceding ejection is sort of clearing the way to make this event possibly larger. Try going to ‘Space Weather’ for more info. The place to keep an eye on things is the ‘Aurora Alerts’ page.

        Hi folks: maxima mea culpa on my previous comments on a flip of the earth’s magnetic field.

        I just finished reading “The Spinning Magnet” by Alanna Mitchell. Our field is steadily weakening, and the “South American Anomaly” is growing and heading west. When the poles flip (not if, but when) the solar wind will go all the way to ground level. Ozone will be depleted. Even a moderate Coronal Mass Ejection will take out most satellites. Our electrical grid totally depends on timing signals from the GPS sats. Self driving cars and semis use GPS signals.

        If it comes it had better come while I’m eating my ice cream, or maybe I’ll have pop corn tonight. (sarcasm).

          Might be able to make popcorn just by placing it out in the sun. This could be a good thing.

        NASA/NOAA are pretty good at forecasting whether a storm will hit. The strength of the storm is something else. “G” is the weaker storm rating. “R” is the moderate. “S” is for severe. The digit following the letter is the severity within the rating. They’re forecasting G1 and possibly G2 which is low.

        Just get your stuff together, and stay prepared. Worrying will not help. Get your mind in the game.

          There’s nothing to worry about geeez. h ttp://www.solarham.net/

        … hey Einstein, tonight the Earth will be facing the wrong direction.

      8. David

        This is just nonsense, real time info is available at http://www.solarham.net/ G1 storming expected, G4 and above is interesting.

      9. the blame-e

        What side of the Earth will be facing the sun when these rays hit?

      10. the blame-e

        Hey. We’re still here. What happened? What went wrong? Aren’t we all supposed to be dead or something?
