Solar flare expected to hit Earth within days sparking power grid disruption

A SOLAR flare is expected to hit Earth within days and could spark magnetic storms and power grid disruptions.

The potential for a solar storm comes after a recent eruption on the surface of the Sun that caused acanyon of fireto burst across the surface.

A so-called "canyon of fire" erupted from the Sun on Friday sending solar flares headed towards Earth that could reach the magnetosphere

The eruption that occurred on Friday is expected to send a storm of solar flares heading towards Earth.

Scientists are predicting the solar flare could reach Earth’s magnetosphere around July 20, 根据 the experts at SpaceWeather.com.

If a solar flare reaches Earth, it could trigger minor, but disruptive geomagnetic storms.

A dark filament of magnetism whipped out of the sun’s atmosphere on July 16, Space Weather 已报告.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the solar eruption.

The canyon which appeared in the sun was 155,000 miles long, 和 15,500 miles deep, according to Space Weather.

An arc of plasma filament of can be seen suspended above the surface of the canyon, before it is flung out into space.

The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) observed a type of solar storm called a Coronal Mass Ejection, or CME, emerging from the sun’s northern hemisphere after the solar eruption.

The difference between CMEs and solar flares is that CMEs travel slower than solar flares that could reach Earth in about eight minutes.

The fastest CME would take 15 到 18 hours to hit Earth.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are currently modeling the CME to determine if it will hit Earth.

Although the CME seems less threatening, there is a chance of solar flares from an occurrence that has happened today.

There are approximately six large sunspots on the sun.

At least two of them pose a threat for strong flares,” according to Space Weather.

美国国家航空航天局 explains this phenomenon: “The magnetic field lines near sunspots often tangle, cross, and reorganize. This can cause a sudden explosion of energy called a solar flare.

NOAA forecasters estimate a 45 percent chance of M-class, medium-sized, flares and a 10 percent chance of X-class, large-sized, flares.

If these flares are created, they are expected to erupt on Sunday.

X-class flares are more frightening because they can cause radio blackouts across Earth and long-lasting radiation storms.

M-class flares only cause short blackouts in the Earth’s North and South poles.
