Very Strong CME Blast To Hit Planet On Saturday, Communication To be Affected
(TheWeatherSpace.com) - An X1.4-Class Solar Flare put out an incredible Coronal Mass Ejection, which is scheduled to hit the planet on Saturday.
This blast was associated with Sunspot AR1520. Due to the sunspot being directly facing our planet, the entire blast was in our direction.
The graphic above show just that. This graphic shows the Earth as a yellow dot, with the coronal mass ejection material being the white and gray bow-like shape.
Expect communications to be affected. This blast hits when it is daylight over the North American areas, but hits at night for Europe. If the magnetic field goes south right away then Europe will have a very strong auroral display. If it waits a bit, it is possible the display will be over North America, furthar south than usual!
