Snake Like Radiation Burst from Sun: Although a G1 level means a mild solar storm, it can also affect satellite activity. Possibly this could affect systems on Earth that depend on satellites. It can also cause minor faults in the power grid.
- A terrible solar storm is being created around the earth
- The wave of radiation emanating from the sun has reached the earth
- G1 level storm can affect satellite
According to Spaceweather.com, this geomagnetic activity is currently at ‘KP-4’ level but it has strong potential to reach ‘KP-5’ level, when it will be called ‘Solar storm’ of G-1 level. It may remain at this level for the next two days. The KP scale is used to measure geomagnetic activities in the Earth’s atmosphere while the G scale is used to measure the intensity of a solar storm.From power grid to satellites can be affected
Although a G1 level means a mild solar storm, it can affect satellite activity. Possibly this could affect systems on Earth that depend on satellites. It can also cause minor faults in the power grid. Due to the atmosphere of the Earth, we are mostly saved from the effects of solar activities. But satellites are not as secure as humans and are easily exposed to the weather of the universe.
Geomagnetic activities produce light shows on Earth
It is believed that during the 11-year solar cycle, G1 level storms hit the Earth more than 900 times. In this, solar waves originate from the Sun and return to the surface of the Sun after going to the peak. Attractive light shows are also seen on Earth due to geomagnetic activities. As activities increase, there are reports of bright aurora sightings in parts of North America. Intense solar storms and waves can severely affect satellites.
