Major solar flares from Tuesday morning are wreaking some havoc today, as the effects have finally reached the Earth’s surface. According to NOAA, the disruption of communication seen today could be just the beginning of what these flares have in store for us.
The video below captured the moment that the solar flare burst from the Sun’s surface, sending radiation towards Earth and leaving us to wait for the aftermath of this solar storm.

Here’s a little more information on solar storms and flares:
So what does this mean? The CMEs could cause a problem for us here on earth. The is an x-class 2.2 solar flare. To put it in layman’s terms, a huge one. The good news is that this isn’t a direct shot, but rather a side shot, meaning that the flare didn’t emerge from the Sun’s surface coming straight towards us.
Some are concerned with the radio interference as well as the pressure such a flare will put on the earth. We’ll see tomorrow when the CME hits what the effects are. For more about these concerns, check out the video below.
So there you have it. As you’re reading this, this blast of radiation is traveling through space and heading our way. There’s not much to do except wait and see what this sun storm has in store for us. Luckily for the few of us smart enough to be prepared, we’re ready for anything.
