Biggest Solar Storm since 2005 will headed Earth

January 24, 2012 | 21:41

The National Weather Service United States (U.S.) predicts the biggest solar storm since 2005 occurred on this day. Effects experienced by the Earth is a powerful radiation.

According to NASA, the bursts of the solar corona (CME) will reach speeds of 2.253 km / sec. These solar storms will touch the earth's upper atmosphere on Tuesday (1/24), approximately at 09:00 U.S. time. These solar storms will last for approximately 7 hours.

NASA categorize this solar radiation storms reaching the S3 level or stronger. Similarly, as reported by, Tuesday (01/24/2012).

While the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) states, the weather will continue to rise in the earth from Tuesday to Wednesday (1/25) tomorrow.

Bursts of solar radiation has the potential to isolate the computer systems that exist on earth satellite, damaging connections lsitrik, and interfere with radio transmissions. In addition, this radiation will also affect humans who are in space and in altitude, such as on airplanes.

To deal with this radiation, a number of flights in the Arctic has been diverted. Then, too, launching a satellite into space also will be suspended, at least wait until the finished solar storms.

Meanwhile, the collision of charged particles with the energetic atoms in a layer of earth's thermosphere will produce Aurora around the Arctic circle.

"The storm this time the sun is the biggest since May 2005, while the rest only about 10 percent," said physicist from the SWPC, Doug Biesecker, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

These solar storms will also interfere with GPS systems. While on Tuesday night, the sky will look a certain color and light which is the effect of these solar storms. At that time, a number of energetic particles will penetrate into Earth's atmosphere.
