Intense Solar Storm Bombarding Earth Now

Intense Solar Storm Bombarding Earth Now on Space

A strong solar storm is battering the Earth now and could amplify the planet’s northern lights displays.

… … …

Space Weather officials said the solar storm could trigger a level G2 geomagnetic storm on Earth, a moderate-level event that could spark auroras at latitudes as low as New York or Idaho, after 9 a.m. EDT. Most northern lights displays, which occur when charged solar particle interact with Earth’s upper atmosphere, are confined to high-latitude regions around the polar regions by the planet’s magnetic field.
