Massive Coronal Hole: Solar Wind Will Hit Earth June 29th-30

A massive coronal hole straddling the Sun’s equator is sending out a highly charged solar wind that will hit the Earth's magnetic field square on.

Solar winds are a continuous stream of ions, charged particles. The coronal hole allows the particles to escape instead of looping back down to the Suns surface. The winds from coronal holes take a few days to reach Earth, and due to the Sun's rotation they emanate out in a ‘pinwheel’ fashion as they pass through the solar system.

It’s the buffering of the Earth's magnetic field that gives rise to auroras, usually in the high northern latitudes, but strong winds can cause huge auroras that can be seen much farther south.

The larger the amount of ionized particles that escape from the hole, the more chance there is of disruption to spacecraft communications and to electronic communications on Earth. Solar winds are far less likely than coronal mass ejections to affect the power grid. With speeds of up to 1-2 million miles per hour (source) the magnetosphere is buffeted and deformed by the stream of particles that hit it. This deformation, the magnetic flux and that flux is what can knock out satellite and electronic communications on Earth.

Should we be expecting strong storms in certain geographic regions?

Or do people still believe Obama that the Sun has no affect on weather...and man-made influences solely change the climate based on 150yr dataset models?

Should be an interesting forecast...with weather this year already quite unusal...

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it odd that the author of of this article is Carrington?

You....anon 1! Are a closed minded fool. And all others who believe whatever you want about climate without thinking about all the evidence available. Preach on fool! Preach on!

The Tribulation began January 22 when the non-christian beast took office, voted into office through lies and deception, for the second time. We have 42 months to go... Get your hearts and minds in order Mankind. The vine is dying and ripe for the harvest. The wedding is not far away. Are you ready? Repent or else! Who am I to say such things? Well...I AM The Beast. I am the White Buffalo.

Excuse me ... fear mongering only works when people are completely ignorant. Here is the original article:

No threat --- 0 --- this time around.

go back one day on spaceweather. we're talking about auroras here. NOT threats.

GOD Karen...

Oh please, these crackpot scientists just blather. They know nothing. It's another psyop.
