Earth faces a magnetic storm because of a sunspot: when to expect the blow
On Tuesday, May 16, the Earth may be hit by a new magnetic storm. It is caused by a coronal mass ejection from the Sun that could affect Earth's magnetic field.
This is stated in the report of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States. As noted, the geomagnetic storm is expected to be of class G1.
According to NOAA, a relatively faint ejection of slow-moving coronal mass went into space on May 12. This occurred as a result of an eruption of the solar magnetism filament in the southern hemisphere of the Sun.
They note that fresh images of the Sun show seven sunspots, one of them, AR3305, is new. According to experts, it is this spot may be the source of solar flares on Tuesday.
Note that doctors advise being attentive to your health during magnetic storms. These days there may be pain in the head, heart, and joints, dizziness, fatigue, and high blood pressure. These days, it is worth excluding junk food and alcohol, taking more walks in the fresh air, not being overworked, and taking vitamins.
Coronal mass ejections are large emissions of plasma from the Sun, sometimes accompanied by solar flares. When this happens, the Earth's magnetic field weakens for about 6-12 hours, and it will take several days to fully recover.
