Solar Storm from Sun’s Atmospheric Hole Releases Geomagnetic Storm to Hit Earth on August 3

A solar storm from a hole in the atmosphere of the Sun released a geomagnetic storm which has been projected to hit Earth on Wednesday, August 3.

The prediction is made by the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The solar outburst triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm, which is relatively weak compared to other categories out of SWPC’s five-tier scale of space weather events.

However, it can still hit our planet’s magnetic field, disrupting both radio and satellite technology, as well as affecting navigation with the global positioning system (GPS).

In recent months, our solar system’s only star has generated multiple storms amid its increasing solar activity under the current Solar Cycle 25.

With space weather experts predicting the cycle peaking by 2025, solar storms, including solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs), are also likely to elevate.
