Scientists warn of solar storm: Flame will come from the Sun, know what will be the effect on Earth


Scientists have issued a solar storm warning. One expert has said that very soon there could be at least two “big-flare players” or flares from the Sun. Space meteorologist Dr. Tamitha Skov said that many sunspot clusters can also be seen from Earth. He said that at present the focus of this storm is not towards the Earth, but we are on high alert. There are mainly 4 components of solar activity. These include solar flares, coronal mass ejections, high-speed solar wind and solar energy particles.

So, do these solar activities affect the Earth? According to NASA, solar flares affect the Earth only when they are towards the Earth’s side of the Sun. Similarly, coronal mass ejections will also affect the Earth only when the Sun comes out of the Earth’s part. The magnetic field ejected from the Sun and the huge cloud of plasma is called coronal mass ejection.

Quoting Dr. Tamitha Skov, Express has written that due to all these reasons some surprising things can be seen in the whole planet. The dusk aurora can be seen in various places. Skov has asked people to enjoy it.

Depending on the strength of solar storms, they can have different types of effects on Earth. According to the US Space Weather Center, geomagnetic storms are ranked on a scale from G1 minor to G5 extreme. The power grid may be affected due to a minor storm. Satellite operations may be affected. In contrast, extreme storms can cause blackouts. Such storms can cause problems like voltage control, which can cause grid system to collapse. The transformer may be damaged. There may be difficulties in spacecraft operations. Many other effects can also be seen.

A NASA blog states that the Sun’s magnetic cycle goes into an overdrive every 11 years. During the peak of this cycle, the magnetic poles of the Sun reverse. This is known as the solar maximum. More sunspots and energy are produced due to the change in the Sun’s magnetic. This causes the explosion of solar particles.
