The greatest solar storm in five years will be accelerated toward Earth, threatening a stream of charged particles, the electric grids that may cause disturb GPS and airplane flights.
The sun broke out Tuesday night, and the effects of the earth should begin hits of 01.00 bis 05.00 Clock Clock EST on Thursday, said forecasters predict Federal Space Weather Center. They say the storm that began with a massive solar flare grows, how it accelerates outward from the Sun.
"We are right on the nose hit," said Joe Kunches, a scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Boulder, Colorado
The huge cloud of charged particles, the public service, airline flights, GPS satellite network and services, are particularly disturbing in the northern areas could. But the explosion itself could also be colorful auroras at the poles further than normal paint.
Astronomers say the Sun was relatively quiet for a while. And this storm, so strong, appear more fierce, because the Earth has been around for several years of low solar activity have been maltreated.
"It must come some time this morning and last all day. In terms of what it means, in relation to the public, there is a greater likelihood that the northern lights or aurora visible if the conditions are correct and clear heaven. "
