US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — According to the data of the Space Weather Prediction Agency Space Weather, today and tomorrow the strongest stream of solar radiation will hit the Earth, which will inevitably cause auroras in northern latitudes.
The fact is that a hole has opened in the atmosphere of the Sun, allowing it to release a stream of solar winds. Space weather forecasters indicate that solar winds will hit the Earth tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.
Particles currently travel 150 million kilometers from the Sun to Earth, where they should arrive today May 19th. Here’s what the Space Weather forecasting site says:
“A small stream of solar wind is expected to hit the Earth’s magnetic field on May 19 and 20. Gaseous material flows out of a small hole in the solar atmosphere. Geomagnetic waves can cause auroras.”
Auroras, which include the northern lights and southern lights, occur when solar particles enter the atmosphere. When the magnetosphere is bombarded by solar winds, stunning blue lights can appear, resulting from the counteraction of the Earth’s atmosphere.
However, researchers also note the effects of a solar storm, and space weather can spread beyond the northern or southern lights.
Despite the fact that, for the most part, the Earth’s magnetic field protects a person from radiation, many people are affected by the energy of the Sun, they can feel tired, weak, depressed. In addition, solar storms can affect satellite technology.
Solar winds can heat the Earth’s outer atmosphere, causing it to expand. This can affect satellites in orbit, which can lead to a lack of GPS navigation, mobile phone signal and satellite television.
In addition, the release of particles can lead to strong currents in the magnetosphere, which can lead to higher than usual electricity in power lines, which will lead to breakdown of electrical transformers and loss of power of power plants.
