Solar Storms: According to the NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration website the first CME, i.e. coronal Mass Ejections(CME’s) will arrive on Thursday (March 31). However, they also predict one more such CME expected on Friday (April 1).

As per the reports from these websites, at least 17 solar eruptions from a single sunspot on the sun have blasted into space in recent days, and many reach Earth as moderate geomagnetic storms by Thursday.

Space.com reported that the eruptions on the sun originated from an overactive sunspot, called AR2975, which has been firing off flares since Monday (March 28). The stellar event may also cause some moderate sky norms on Earth.

The eruptions on the sun are called sunspots. They occur when magnetic lines twist and suddenly realign near the visible surface. Sometimes, these explosions are associated with coronal Mass ejections(CME’s), or streams of charged particles that shoot into space.

Furthermore, NASA’s powerful Solar dynamics Observatory captures studding views of the solar eruptions, as did the solar and Heliosphere Observatory.

However, the predictions are that this possible storm is moderate. Moreover, NASA and other space agencies expect that the year 2022 to be relatively quiet for the Sun.

Apparently, the CME’s or charged particles may generate G2 or G3 (moderate) geomagnetic storms. A strong flare aimed towards Earth, along with a large CME, may induce problems. Problems such as damaging power lines or disabling satellites.
