What is a solar storm and how does It affect Earth

Today on 14 april 2022 powerful Geomagnetic solar storm to hit earth, solar storm means on the solar surface different types of eruptions of mass and energy has been happened.

There are several common signs of solar activity, such as flares, prominences, sunspots, coronal mass ejections, and plages and related phenomena.During all of them, the stored magnetic energy is released suddenly, accelerating the hot gas near the surface and the sun’s corona.There are times when these particles travel beyond the Earth’s magnetic field and reach interplanetary space by flowing along the magnetic field of the Sun.

The material can burst particles into our upper atmosphere when it collides with the magnetic field of Earth and trapped radiation belts.In addition, ‘charged’ particles produce their own magnetic fields, which can alter Earth’s magnetic field and effect compass readings.Alterations in magnetic fields can also cause electricity to flow through long pipelines, or cause power grid surges resulting in brownouts and blackouts.

What is a solar storm ?

On Tuesday, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) told that halo coronal mass ejection (CME) was spotted racing toward the Earth. 

This horrible situation has happened today caused the global blackout.

In addition, the Center of Excellence in Space Sciences India (CESSI) shared information on the upcoming storm on Twitter.Detection of a halo CME by SOHO LASCO occurred on 11 April.

“Our model fit indicates a high probability of an Earth impact on 14 April 2022 with speeds between 429 and 575 kilometers per second,” CESSI tweeted.
