A Solar Blob Will Arrive Today

It might sound like something out of a SI-FI movie; a giant blob of solar plasma will hit the Earth today, but don’t panic. This solar outburst should deliver nothing much but a killer light show up north.

On January 13th a CME or coronal mass ejection from our Sun took place. This is an outburst of electrically charged plasma and the blob has now traveled the 93 million miles to Earth. Forecasters expect it to sweep over Earth’s magnetic field this morning into the midday. Once again do not panic.

Now we could see some satellite outages and a disruption in the electric power grids. These things can happen when a strong solar storm hits our magnetic field, but that’s what it’s there for. The real show will be up north. The past week has been great for those who can see the northern lights and tonight it should be bad-ass. It’s a shame we won’t get to see it here.
