Solar Storm

A solar storm is incoming after a huge hole opened on the surface of the Sun’s atmosphere, scientists have warned. The storm, which could knock out GPS, mobile phone signal, and digital television, is expected to hit Earth on Friday, March 15, and is the result of a “canyon-shaped” hole in the Sun’s upper atmosphere. The long and narrow slit in the Sun’s atmosphere – known as a coronal hole – is unleashing a barrage of cosmic rays and unfortunately for Earth, it is in the way. Space weather forecasting experts have predicted the solar storm will reach us on March 15.
