NEW DELHI: Earth could be impacted by a high-speed solar storm, approaching 1.6 million kilometers per hour, according to information released by NASA.
This could affect satellite signals and communication networks, as well as interfere with GPS systems, cell phones and television. It could also interfere with the transmission of energy.
Solar storms are huge bursts of charged particles, ejected from the Sun’s atmosphere into space.
The current storm is the result of a “hole” in the equatorial region of the Sun. He is expected to whip the Earth later Tuesday. NASA first detected it on July 3 and classified it as an X1.5-class flare.
Class X denotes the most intense eruptions, while the number provides more information about its strength. An X2 is twice as intense as an X1, an X3 is three times as intense, etc.
These geomagnetic storms do not present a major risk to human health. However, disturbances in power and communication systems are common. Mobile, TV and satellite transmissions can also be affected by these powerful phenomena.
Those who reside in higher latitudes can witness spectacular auroras. Solar storms, charged with charged particles, interact with the earth’s magnetic fields to produce the celestial spectacles in the night sky.
