High-speed Solar Storm 1.6M kph may hit earth today or tomorrow, impact to GPS, phone signals

The solar system is a culmination of wonders. A solar Storm said to have originated in the sun’s atmosphere is expected to hit the earth at a speed of 1.6 million kilometers per hour.

A solar storm is a hole that opens up in the sun’s atmosphere and emits a stream of solar wind in the earth’s direction. The impact as explained by NASA is that when it comes towards the earth at a heavy speed, the magnetic field of the earth drops to a significant level and the effect stays for about 6 to 12 hours. To regain the strength, it would take a considerable amount of days.

The solar storm may have an effect on the satellite signals. It may lead to the interruption of the satellite signals, radio signals, communication networks, and weather.

In spite of all the warnings, experts say that panicking about the situation is absolutely not necessary. It has a minor effect and is not going to affect the earth drastically. 

The impact of the solar storm may be visible in the north and south poles in the form of beautiful lighting at night.

According to NASA, this storm is classified as an X1.5 class fare. X is the most intense flare and the number indicates the strength. Being a less number, this storm has the least effect. 

The solar system might hit the earth by July 13th or 14th

The possibility of such storms causing a harmful effect is rare. It is only a matter of time before we can see the effect of this solar storm.
