Solar storm heading towards Earth: Why electrical problems are expected

Solar storm heading towards Earth: Why electrical problems are expected

A warning from the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that a geomagnetic storm is expected to hit Earth on October 11 and could cause fluctuations in the power phase, especially at high latitudes where the earth is exposed to more.

Meteorologists at the U.S. Meteorological Observatory, as part of the federal administration, designed the path of the coronal mass emission known as NOAA, CME.And it will be in the direction of the earth. By refining the analyzes, the researchers confirmed that this would come by October 11th.

These storms are “coronal mass discharges”, also known as “hollow CMEs”. They are similar to solar flares that go directly toward the earth. Scientists have discovered that they form a halo around the sun, which is a sign of a strong solar system.

This October 11 event is expected to identify a sunspot called AR2882 and its appearance, which predicted a coronal mass emission toward Earth a few days ago, according to NOAA surveys. Chronographers have recorded that the solar storm cloud is coming almost directly towards our planet. The storm is expected in the coming hours and the event will last 24 hours.

NOAA expects the SWPC M1.6 CME to arrive after noon tomorrow, Monday, October 11th.

It remains to be seen what this mass emission, i.e. this solar storm, will cause as it approaches Earth. Initially, auroras were visible from latitudes such as Tasmania in Australia, Scotland, southern Sweden and the Baltic states. The northern states of the United States also need to be vigilant as twilight approaches as they anticipate geomagnetic storm levels.

NOAA satellites can be attacked and expose “orientation irregularities”, which means ground control will have to recalculate their orbit to divert them.

Geomagnetic storm type G2 can be reached, which is moderately strong, according to the agency.

But the storm expected on October 11 is expected to be less intense than the Carrington event, the historic geomagnetic storm since 1859, and is considered to be the most powerful solar storm recorded in history with data.

In any case it is the largest coronal mass discharge or sunlight, CME. On August 28, Aurora was actually spotted as far as Colombia. Intensification occurred on September 1 and 2 and telegraph systems across Europe and North America failed.

The first signs of this phenomenon have been seen throughout North America since August 28, 1859. Intense shadows of light were seen from Maine to Florida. Even in Cuba, ship captains recorded in their record books the appearance of copper lamps near the summit.

During this time, telegraph cables, an invention that began working in the United States in 1843, were plagued by cuts and short circuits that caused widespread fires in Europe and North America.

Auroras are found in medium latitudes such as Rome or Madrid and even in low latitudes such as Havana, Hawaii, and Colombia.
