Did a solar storm damage Earth’s magnetic field?

A review of data, relating to the summer of 2015, suggests a solar storm struck the Earth’s magnetic field. This unprecedented event lasted a couple of hours, and it could have shrunk the Earth’s magnetosphere.

Future solar storm could cause trillions in damage to technology

In 1859, an invisible wave crashed into the Earth. Electrons, swept up like so much detritus in the magnetic current, coursed along telegraph wires.

Big solar storm headed our way Saturday

Meteorologists are forecasting a big storm for Saturday, Sept. 13, but it's not a storm where an umbrella will be of much use. The sun is responsible for the solar storm, caused by a sunspot erupting and creating an X1.6-class solar flare.

Earth has 1-in-8 chance of massive solar megastorm by 2020

After experiencing a disruptive solar flare earlier this year, people are more aware of the sun's power. However, a bigger, more destructive solar storm might be in our immediate future.

Immense solar eruption may force aircraft to reroute on Tuesday

A powerful solar storm unleashing a coronal mass ejection towards Earth on Monday morning has triggered a stark warning from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA).

Unusual solar storm pushes northern lights to the far south

A moderate-sized solar storm that arrived on Monday, October 24, has pushed the vibrant and stunning northern lights to the U.S. southern states. The lights occur due to charged particles coming from the solar wind entering the magnetic field of Earth.

Mighty solar storm hits Earth August 3 or later

Two days ago, the entire Earth-facing side of our sun erupted in tumultuous activity, and NASA scientists have warned that a mass of superhot plasma blasted out of the sun, possibly hitting the earth as early as Tuesday, August 3 (Middle European Time).

In the image, you can see that there are two coronal mass ejections (CMEs) projected to influence the Earth's magnetosphere in the next few days. The first is associated with the R1 (Minor) flare observed on 09 Sep while the second is related to yesterday's R3 (Strong) flare.
