Solar-Flare1

(PCM) This past Wednesday a strong solar flare was released by the sun and is on a steady place towards the planet Earth.

Researchers have identified the flare as an “X-class” flare, which happens to be the most dangerous type, however experts claim that no major or catastrophic events are expected to occur.

NASA officials have made a statement that claims the flare will “pose no danger to anyone on Earth or the astronauts living aboard the International Space Station”.

There could be some slight fluctuations within Earth’s power grid as well as some disturbances with satellite and radio transmissions as a result of the flare.

It is claimed that if there are any additional eruptions over the next few days there could be some more disturbances within the Earth’s geomagnetic field. The flare will also cause an expansion of the aurora borealis otherwise known as The Northern Lights, so individuals who reside in northern New England, the far north Plains and the Pacific northwest will be able to get a great view.
