Giant Solar Storm To Slam Into Earth, Potentially Causing Disruptions
On Thursday, solar winds from a collapsing "canyon of fire" filament are expected to strike Earth and produce at the very least a minor G1 geomagnetic storm.
Early in July, solar observers noticed a variety of solar filaments that later burst, leaving a "canyon of fire" on our nearest star that is 238,880 miles long and 12,400 miles deep.
According to LiveScience, the canyon is shooting solar debris right at Earth.
According to LiveScience, solar filaments are arcs of electrified gas (also known as plasma) that follow the magnetic field of the star as they move through the sun's atmosphere.
The outlet said, "The filaments are flammable, and when they collapse, they shoot exploding jets of solar wind (coronal mass ejections) toward Earth.
A collapsing "canyon of fire" filament's solar winds are predicted to hit Earth on Thursday and at the very least cause a minor G1 geomagnetic storm.
Solar observers detected several solar filaments early in July that eventually burst, leaving our nearest star with a "canyon of fire" that is 238.880 light-years long and 12.400 light-years deep.
LiveScience claims that the canyon is directly directing solar material toward Earth.
The magnetic field of our globe is slightly compressed throughout the storms by waves of extremely intense particles, according to LiveScience.
According to LiveScience, although the G1 magnetic storm predicted for Thursday is intended to be modest,
it might nevertheless have an impact on changes in the electrical grids and satellites that manage our mobile gadgets.
