    Massive solar storm that will slam Earth TOMORROW could knockout power supplies, damage satellites and trigger stunning auroras

    Nasa spotted a solar flare releasing a coronal mass ejection earlier this week

    National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a 'G1' storm watch

    It coincides with the formation of 'equinox cracks' in the sun, which form around the equinoxes on March 20 and September 23 and weaken the magnetic field

    A huge solar storm is heading for Earth, and it's likely to hit tomorrow.

    The storm could knockout satellites, disrupt power supplies and spark stunning displays of the Northern Lights.

    It was created last week by an enormous explosion in the sun's atmosphere known as a solar flare, and charged particles from that flare are now on their way to our planet.

    The arrival of the solar storm coincides with the formation of 'equinox cracks' in Earth's magnetic field, which some scientists believe form around the equinoxes on March 20 and September 23 each year.

    These cracks weaken our planet's natural protection against charged particles and could leave commercial flights and GPS systems exposed to the incoming storm.

    The cracks also mean stargazers are more likely to catch glimpses of the Northern lights this week.

    This may include parts of Scotland and northern England, as well as the 'northern tier' of the US including parts of Michigan and Maine.

    The charged, magnetic particles from the solar storm can interfere with machinery in Earth's orbit as well as at the planet's surface, such as GPS systems and radio signals.

    They can also threaten airlines by disturbing Earth's magnetic field.

    Very large flares can even create currents within electricity grids and knock out energy supplies.

    'A minor geomagnetic storm watch is now in effect for the 14 and 15 March, 2018. Aurora may be visible at high latitudes,' the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) wrote in a statement.

    The particles, which came from the sun after solar flares took place on March 6 and 7, could cause 'weak power grid fluctuations' and a 'minor impact on satellite operations,' according to the NOAA.

    Nasa said the first of the two flares - classified in the potent X class and facing directly at the Earth - was the biggest this year.

    It was one of the largest of this cycle known as the solar minimum, which began in early 2007.

    Geomagnetic storms are ranked on a severity scale, with G at the bottom, R in the middle and S at the top.

    A G1 level storm is nothing and happens all the time. Matter of fact look at the last line in the article....

    Geomagnetic storms are ranked on a severity scale, with G at the bottom, R in the middle and S at the top.

    And that isn't even accurate.

    Geomagnetic storms are 'G' storms.
    Solar radiation storms are 'S' storms.
    Radio blackouts are 'R' storms.

    And of course there are overlaps as all storms may have some effect to one extent or another in all these areas. Dailymail is becoming more and more sensational click bait.


    G 1 Minor

    Power systems: Weak power grid fluctuations can occur.

    Spacecraft operations: Minor impact on satellite operations possible.

    Other systems: Migratory animals are affected at this and higher levels; aurora is commonly visible at high latitudes (northern Michigan and Maine).

    So, fear-mongering from our media masters? Keep the masses frightened so that they're easier to control. Shades of JohnGalt-Fla and the

    "Deathburgers."

    Fifth thread down on the Earth Changes list is "A Massive Geomagnetic Storm Is Going to Hit Earth on March 18th," so if tomorrow doesn't do it for you just wait four more days! And keep that bugout bag handy ...

    Here's another problem with the OP. We are day ten into a stretch of zero sunspots.

    G1 WATCH FOR 14 AND 15 MARCH, 2018 UTC DAYS
    published: Monday, March 12, 2018 19:20 UTC
    A G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm watch is now in effect for the 14 and 15 March, 2018 UTC-days. The arrival of a co-rotating interaction region (CIR), followed by a recurrent, negative polarity coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) is expected to cause the escalated geomagnetic responses. Keep checking our SWPC webpage for the latest forecasts, warnings, and alerts.
    So what is "CH HSS"

    CORONAL HOLE HIGH SPEED STREAMS (CH HSS)
    published: Monday, September 25, 2017 21:17 UTC
    Coronal holes appear as dark areas in the solar corona in extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray solar images. They appear dark because they are cooler, less dense regions than the surrounding plasma and are regions of open, unipolar magnetic fields. This open, magnetic field line structure allows the solar wind to escape more readily into space, resulting in streams of relatively fast solar wind and is often referred to as a high speed stream in the context of analysis of structures in interplanetary space.

    Coronal holes can develop at any time and location on the Sun, but are more common and persistent during the years around solar minimum. The more persistent coronal holes can sometimes last through several solar rotations (27-day periods). Coronal holes are most prevalent and stable at the solar north and south poles; but these polar holes can grow and expand to lower solar latitudes. It is also possible for coronal holes to develop in isolation from the polar holes; or for an extension of a polar hole to split off and become an isolated structure. Persistent coronal holes are long-lasting sources for high speed solar wind streams. As the high speed stream interacts with the relatively slower ambient solar wind, a compression region forms, known as a co-rotating interaction region (CIR). From the perspective of a fixed observer in interplanetary space, the CIR will be seen to lead the coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS).

    The CIR can result in particle density enhancement and interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) strength increases preceding onset of the CH HSS. As the CH HSS begins to arrive at Earth, solar wind speed and temperature increase, while particle density begins to decrease. After passage of the CIR and upon transition into the CH HSS flow, the overall IMF strength will normally begin to slowly weaken.

    Generally, coronal holes located at or near the solar equator are most likely to result in any CIR passage and/or higher solar wind speeds at Earth. Strong CIRs and the faster CH HSS can impact Earth’s magnetosphere enough to cause periods of geomagnetic storming to the G1-G2 (Minor to Moderate) levels; although rarer cases of stronger storming may also occur. Geomagnetic storms are classified using a five-level NOAA Space Weather Scale. The larger and more expansive coronal holes can often be a source for high solar wind speeds that buffet Earth for many days.

    Because of their potential for escalated geomagnetic activity and possible storming (G1 or higher), forecasters analyze coronal holes closely and also note them on the daily synoptic drawing. SWPC forecasters take into account any possible effects of CIR and CH HSS activity when forecasting the anticipated levels of overall planetary geomagnetic response for each 3-hour synoptic period over the next three days; as detailed in the 3-day forecast. Additionally, any predicted CIR or CH HSS influences are explained in more detail in the forecast discussion.
    So where's the "flare"? Said in Clara Peller voice.
    Facts?? We don't need no stinkin facts...
