Two recent major solar flares have predicted coronal objects toward Earth, which could cause more intense geomagnetic storms, which could affect electrical phases… Aurora borealis visible at unusual latitudes.
This Thursday, March 31st a strong solar storm will hit the earth and its effects will often be significant, especially in the power networks.
First, the first visible effect is the aurora borealis, which is more common in southern areas than usual. Thus, they are visible as far north as the United Kingdom and Denmark, and as far south as Sweden.
But the other effect will affect networks. On this Thursday, suddenly false alarms may sound for no reason. In addition, low frequency radio and satellite navigation systems may be affected by this large coronal material project.
This Monday, March 28, a solar eclipse was triggered by 17 eruptions, two of which were significant. Both of these expelled coronal material toward Earth.
The Chronograph of the Solar and Heliospheric Laboratory (SOHO) recorded the eruptions, the effects of which will be felt on Earth this Thursday.
As quoted by NASA Future scienceThese eruptions will trigger a geomagnetic storm not “G2 with intensity, but G3” or “slightly stronger”.
As a reminder, on October 11, a G2-type (moderately strong) geomagnetic storm hit Earth. As a reminder, the Carrington event, a historic geomagnetic storm before 1859, is considered to be the most powerful solar storm ever recorded in history.
