    Massive solar storm that will slam Earth TOMORROW could knockout power supplies, damage satellites and trigger stunning auroras

    Massive solar storm that will slam Earth TOMORROW could knockout power supplies,
    damage satellites and trigger stunning auroras

    Nasa spotted a solar flare releasing a coronal mass ejection earlier this week

    National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a 'G1' storm watch

    It coincides with the formation of 'equinox cracks' in the sun, which form around the equinoxes on March 20 and September 23 and weaken the magnetic field

    The charged, magnetic particles from the solar storm can interfere with machinery in Earth's orbit as well as at the planet's surface, such as GPS systems and radio signals.

    They can also threaten airlines by disturbing Earth's magnetic field.

    Very large flares can even create currents within electricity grids and knock out energy supplies.

    'A minor geomagnetic storm watch is now in effect for the 14 and 15 March, 2018. Aurora may be visible at high latitudes,' the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) wrote in a statement.

    The particles, which came from the sun after solar flares took place on March 6 and 7, could cause 'weak power grid fluctuations' and a 'minor impact on satellite operations,' according to the NOAA.
