Major Solar Storm Peaks Today

Share the News

The sun has produced its biggest solar storm since 2005, and its effects on the earth peak today. So if you lose your GPS signal or experience a power outage it’s probably just a “speeding cloud of plasma and charged particles blast[ing] past Earth!” And we mean blasting. The storm is hurtling toward our planet at a speed of somewhere around 4.5 million miles per hour.

And it’s possible that we may see an aurora tonight. But, apparently, the behavior of a solar storm is hard to predict with any certainty. So, if it happens, you heard it here first. If it’s a no-show, it’s not my fault.
