On August 3, the solar storm hit Earth with winds of 2.8 million kilometers per hour

Two hurricanes have been brewing today, one political storm, let's not talk about it, let's talk about another storm today!

A solar storm from the sun hits Earth on Wednesday, August 3. ​Luckily, the hurricane was classified as weakened, according to astronomers. The high-speed solar wind from a coronal hole in the sun is said to have hit the Earth's magnetic field, provoke a G1 geomagnetic storm warning from the State Oceanic Administration.

NASA's Space Weather Prediction Center made the forecast after observing from space weather the outflow of gaseous material from the South Pole of the Sun's atmosphere. Coronal holes are regions in the sun's upper atmosphere where our star's charged gas or plasma is colder and less dense. These holes are also home to the Sun's magnetic field lines. According to the exploratorium in San Francisco, in a strong magnetic field of the planet, like our sun material impact the earth at a speed of 2.8 million km per hour, rather than by outward into space beam will ring back to its own, which makes the sun can be consumed, provoke geomagnetic storms, the aurora storm 39bet-xì dách-phỏm miền bắc-tiến lên miền bắc-xóc đĩa-game bắn cá.

When the solar wind hits Earth, Earth's magnetic field is somewhat compressed by waves of high-energy particles that trickle along magnetic field lines near the poles, churning molecules in the atmosphere and releasing energy in the form of light, creating colorful auroras similar to those that make up the Northern lights. ​Tornadoes generated by these debris have the potential to cause minor fluctuations in the power grid, such as this weakened G1 geomagnetic storm, which could alter fluctuations in solar satellites, including mobile devices and GPS systems. It will also carry the aurora as far south as Michigan and even Maine.

The hurricane arrives as the sun is slowly entering what astronomers know to be the most active phase of a long cycle of about 11 years.

A paper published July 20 in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics indicates that the sun rises and falls in a cycle, but that lately the sun has been more active than predicted, with sunspots appearing twice as frequently. ​Researchers predict the sun's activity to climb steadily over the next two years, reaching an overall maximum in 2025 and then decreasing again, proposing a new model of solar activity by counting sunspots individually for each hemisphere. The researchers believe the method could be used to create more precise solar forecasts.

​Researchers believe the largest solar storm witnessed in modern history was the 1859 Carrington event, which released about as much energy as a megaton atomic bomb. After slamming into Earth, the powerful stream of solar particles burned out telegraph systems around the world and caused auroras brighter than the light of the moon. If a similar event were to occur today, scientists advise it would cause trillions of dollars in damage and trigger widespread darkness, like the 1989 solar storm that released a billion tons of gas and caused a blackout across the Canadian province of Quebec.

So could 2025 be a repeat of 1859? We'll see!
