On July 17, Dr. Tamitha Skov, a leading expert in space science, working at the non-profit Aerospace Corporation and a lecturer at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Space Administration. Uploaded on Twitter MXH about the forecast, on July 19, a powerful solar storm will “land” on Earth and it is difficult to determine the direction of the magnetic field from the storm.

“Direct hit! Large snake-like storms that spin, launch out of the Sun to strike the Earth directly. The magnetic field of a solar storm towards Earth will be difficult to predict. They can carry impulses. category G2 or G3 if the storm’s magnetic field is southerly,” Ms. Skov wrote on Twitter.

In which, solar storms are usually ranked from G1 to G5, G5 is the strongest level.

Post by Dr. Tamitha Skov on MXH Twitter about the solar storm.

According to Ms. Skov, the US space agency (NASA) forecast this solar storm will “land” on Earth on the morning of July 19, accompanied by auroras in some areas. .

Solar storms can also lead to disruption of GPS signals and radio transmitters.

Sheet Interesting Engineering The Sun is in the active phase of an 11-year cycle, and magnetic storms like the one above are likely to happen more often in the near future.

From March until now, Earth has been continuously attacked by geomagnetic storms of the Sun. Although geomagnetic storms have not yet caused major damage, they are a sign of stronger storms in the future.

Most recently, in early July, a G1-class geomagnetic storm hit Earth, causing bright auroras across Canada. No one saw this storm, by the time they did, it was quite late.

On July 12, a giant sunspot and filaments on the Sun’s surface made astronomers worry about the possibility of solar rays heading towards Earth, and mass ejections. corona discharge (CME) can lead to damage to electrical equipment.

On July 15, it was reported that a large fire broke out from the Sun, causing radio blackouts in many parts of the world.

What is a Solar Storm?

Solar storms, also known as coronal eruptions (CMEs), if powerful enough, can wreak havoc on Earth’s electrical systems by interacting with our planet’s magnetic field.

CME occurs when the Sun’s magnetic field is twisted by internal motion. Eventually this accumulated energy is released, the magnetic field explodes and ejects a large amount into space.

Solar storms are usually graded from G1 to G5, where G5 is the strongest. So how harmful are solar storms really?

Hurricane G1 is the smallest type of geomagnetic storm – a space weather event that occurs when Earth’s magnetic field is disturbed by solar energy. Hurricane G1 may slightly affect satellite operations and cause minor power grid fluctuations.

Meanwhile, storm G5 is the most severe category. Storm G5 is capable of causing widespread loss of voltage control, even the power grid system may collapse completely. The spacecraft will have difficulty navigating and exchanging data. Transmission of high-frequency radio waves will be interrupted for several days. dien-2022071820152725.chn dien-202207191356287.chn?fbclid=IwAR2-6Zy8rHEX4WXiwrHfDHxknfxmB0EGBbrRrNyNm8S91bwxxuux3Zd3tmg
