New solar storm affects geomagnetic poles and satellites

A new geomagnetic solar storm alert was announced yesterday afternoon from the report of NOAA.The first alert said geomagnetic impulses between 18 and 21 hours and said the impact of the effects mainly at the poles to latitudes of 65 degrees. Subsequently the time of impact until 13 pm today, May 22.

Such waves cause fluctuations in the energy networks and are sometimes beautiful auroras by changing the polarity of the particles carried by the solar wind at our magnetic poles and this time reached to the skies of Canada and Alaska.

Solar activity announced by NOAA, is expected to be in very low with a slight chance of X-ray bursts of class M (strong) that affect the Earth only in the case to be aimed directly at Earth

We are defenseless against the scourge of a super solar storm

Humanity is not ready to face a solar storm of great magnitude and the apocalyptic script that describes the entire planet in darkness is quite likely, according to Mike Hapgoog, a British scientist Rutherford Appleton Laboratory dealing with forecasts " space weather ".

While much of modern electronic equipment and space vehicles that are in Earth orbit is designed to withstand geomagnetic storms caused by the explosions on the Sun, there is no guarantee that one of these days these teams stop working .

An intense geomagnetic storm can cause a global blackout. The latest such incident took place in 1989 in Quebec, Canada.

It took only 90 seconds for the entire Quebec power grid quedase inoperative. The blackout, which lasted nine hours affected six million people and cost C $ 2,000 million.

Also there were numerous failures in communication with space vehicles. The Aerospace Defense Command U.S.. States., Whose radars are tracking all objects in space, reported that 'lost sight' to 1,600 units. The re-locate a few days later.

Communication failures now represent a major threat, says British scientist. Geomagnetic storms cause large alterations in the upper layers of the atmosphere, which can affect, for example, GPS (global positioning system) we use every day through mobile phones, financial transactions, security systems navigation, etc..

Storms can also disrupt communications transatlantic flights. If this happens, could repeat the collapse of the 2010 air traffic caused by the eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull.

Although we can not prevent the solar storms, we can try to reduce the harmful effects they produce in the lives of the inhabitants of our planet, the scientist.To this we must bear in mind this spatial phenomenon when designing electronic devices and other devices that may be affected by solar storms.

M5.7 Solar Flare - Sunspot 1476 w/ HMI and AIA (5/10/2012)

This 24 hour movie shows Sunspot 1476 over a 24 hour period as captured by HMI with the AIA 304 filter layered on top. The largest of the flashes was an M5.7 Solar Flare during the early hours of May 10, 2012.

SOLAR ACTIVITY UPDATE: CMEs And a Large Coronal Hole (May 9th, 2012)

A solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field during the late hours of May 8th, stirring geomagnetic activity and auroras over parts of Europe.

A pair of CMEs en route to Earth could add to the effect of the solar wind stream, igniting even brighter auroras during the next 24-48 hours. NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of geomagnetic storms on May 9th.
