Solar winds at 300 kilometers per second “hit” the Earth today


Washington – Egypt today

A solar wind is set to hit Earth today, according to meteorologists who believe our planet could experience “terrestrial magnetic disturbances” as a result. And the astronomy website Space Weather revealed that solar wind It moves at a speed of more than 300 kilometers per second. Dr Tony Phillips, from Space Weather, said: ‘Slight geomagnetic disturbances are likely to occur on June 15-16 when a current of solar wind hits. the magnetic field for the earth. The gaseous material flows from a southern hole in the sun’s atmosphere.”
Fortunately, solar winds are unlikely to do more damage this time than the aurora borealis, which includes the northern lights, southern lights and aurorae — which occur when solar particles hit the atmosphere.

As the magnetosphere is bombarded by the solar wind, stunning blue lights can appear as that layer of the atmosphere deflects particles.

However, the researchers also note that the consequences of a solar storm and space weather can extend beyond the northern or southern lights.

For the most part, Earth’s magnetic field protects humans from the barrage of radiation that comes from sunspots, but solar storms can affect satellite-based technology.

The solar wind can heat the Earth’s outer atmosphere, causing it to expand, affecting satellites in orbit and possibly leading to a lack of GPS navigation, mobile phone signal and satellite channels like Sky.

The impulse of particles can also lead to high currents in the magnetosphere, and thus higher than normal electricity in power lines, and power plant explosions and losses.
