Solar Storm may strike Earth today, expect stunning Northern Lights views

Two solar flares erupting from the sun have been spotted by NASA, which may cause a solar storm which is likely to strike the Earth today.

The sun’s atmosphere has been witnessing massive explosions which are also known as solar flares which would further send higher than normal radiation levels towards the Earth. The storm is triggered by the collision of the magnetic field of the earth.

These flares are expected to coincide with the earth’s magnetic field’s equinox cracks formation. Thus, some damage in the earth’s natural anti-charge particle shield.

Today, i.e. March 14 could see a minor solar storm reaching the Earth which would further amplify the planet's auroras. Thus, as per space officials, the Northern Lights would be visible from North U.S.

As per an alert from the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), in Boulder, Colorado. States of Michigan and Maine, could see northern lights. The storm could also result in fluctuations in a few weak power grids, but these fluctuations will only have very little impact on satellites in space.

However, GPS systems and commercial flights could be disrupted, and some power outages could also be witnessed.

As per the scientists, the upcoming geomagnetic storm is expected to be a G1 class, which happens to be a minor event. The event will run from March 14 to 15.
