Alert! Geomagnetic storm will hit Earth today as the sun explodes CME

A solar wind stream and a cluster of CMEs are all poised to unleash a G-2 class geomagnetic storm on Earth. What impact will it have? To find.

A moderately dangerous geomagnetic storm is expected to hit Earth today, October 1! According to the spaceweather.com report, the geomagnetic storm will be the result of the double solar events that will lead to a G2 class geomagnetic storm on Earth. First, a solar wind stream should hit the Earth’s magnetic field; it flows from an equatorial hole in the sun’s atmosphere. Second, a coronal mass ejection (CME) spewed out by the Sun sent massive amounts of energy towards Earth. The CME was ejected from the Sun on September 28.

Solar outbursts trigger coronal mass ejections (CMEs), which ultimately generate geomagnetic storms on Earth. These are also known as magnetic storms. It is a period of rapid variation of the magnetic field, which can last from a few hours to a few days.

Although categorized as “moderate”, G2 storms frequently produce voltage warnings in power grids at high altitudes and, if they last too long, can even damage transformers. In addition, they could have an effect on the operation of satellites and hinder high frequency radio propagation. Connectivity to the Internet and mobile networks can also suffer.

The same was confirmed by space weather expert Dr. Tamitha Skov, who tweeted: “A #solarstorm will graze Earth on October 1st just as the solar wind rapidly strikes. Expect views improved from #aurora to mid-latitudes. auroral propagation possible on night side of Earth. #GPS users expect reception issues at dawn, dusk and high latitudes!”

Not only that, the Sun’s terror seems to be taking another turn as a large group of active sunspots is about to spin on the sun’s northeast limb, which has already produced an M1-class solar flare on the 30th September partially eclipsed by the sun’s edge. This unobstructed eruption was likely much stronger, the report mentions.

Active solar activity is the result of its journey to its solar maxima, which is a period of maximum activity in its 11-year solar cycle.
