Authorities of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) revealed that the Tierra you could be hit by an intense one solar storm the next game November 30th. According to the special climate expert Tamisha Skovs, the phenomenon will cause auroras in the sky that could end the alienation of the inhabitants of the planet. No matter what, you could also draw severe consequences.
As explained by Skovs, the solar storm could cause effects on normal radio and GPS signals, which could suffer less interference during this event. In the same way, experts assure that it will be necessary to supervise the satellites in low Earth orbit, so that they can experience leve changes in their movement, speed and trajectory if the solar storm occurs.

What is a solar storm?
NASA explained that geomagnetic storms, popularly known as solar stormsif when the Sun emits a large number of charged particles and electromagnetic radiation, these interact with the Earth’s magnetic field and the upper atmosphere of the planet Tierra.
According to the authorities, when the particles and radiation reach the Earth, they can interact with the magnetic field and cause a variety of adverse effects; Mainly, they are characterized by affecting electrical networks and communications, as well as causing auroras in high and low latitudes.
What are the consequences of a solar storm?
To assess the consequences that a solar storm can generate, the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmosférica Administration of United States) uses a 5-level scale:
- G1 – Minor: occasionally light effects in the electrical lights, small energy fluctuations and visible auroras at high latitudes.
- G2 – Moderate: generates more widespread auroras, abnormal voltages in energy systems and possible effects on satellites orbiting the Earth.
- G3 – Strong: holds the ability to occasionally fluctuate energy in the electrical reds, difficulties in controlling the electrical red, impacts on satellite navigation and auroras visible at lower latitudes than normal.
- G4 – Severe: causes damage to electrical systems, interruptions in satellite navigation and communications.
- G5 – Extreme: at the latest level there are failures in the electrical networks, extensive damage to the transformers, general interruptions in communications and satellite navigation.
