According to an AP report, the sun—which has been fairly quiet up to now—experienced a huge solar flare, resulting in the largest solar storm in 5 years, and it’s on a collision course with Earth.
Joe Kunches, a scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, remarked, "It's hitting us right in the nose.”
A NASA solar physicist, Alex Young agreed adding, "It could give us a bit of a jolt."
Problems Earth inhabitants may experience would most likely include interruptions in power grids, and GPS systems, as well as with airlines and aircraft communications. Some people will experience visual problems.
Of course, there is a positive side to being bombarded with a solar storm; those in areas ideal for viewing the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) may have an extraordinary show.
The storm's charged particles are expected to hit Earth at a rate of 4 million mph on Thursday and last into Friday morning.
Get ready for the solar storm!
