By Solar storm It affected the earth Massive blackout? Recently it was due A great sunshine That eruption was recorded last October 9, 2021, It came to earth October 12, Proof of Reactivation of the functional cycle In our star.
Earth-driven coronal mass emission, or CME, Raised the Kp index, Measurement of the disturbance of the Earth’s magnetic field, 6 (moderate level). Kp index levels range from 0 (quiet) to 9 (strong).
Moderate solar flare, class M1.6, emitted by our star a few hours ago. In the next few days some small effects in the form of auroras can be seen in the polar regions

Partner with CME M1.6 class sunlight Active area 2882, which peaked on October 9th. M-class combustion They are one tenth of the most intense, X-Class burning volume. The number provides additional information about their strength. An M2 is two times more intense than an M1, an M3 is three times more intense, and so on.
What does NASA say?
Reported by NASA, LA Combustion energy also created the explosion of particles The sun It was discovered by the space agency’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory-Ahead Observatory or Stereo-A spacecraft.
Stereo-A too CME detected From his place far away from the earth. CME’s initial velocity estimated by NASA’s Office of Meteorological Operations on Mars 983 kilometers per second.
According to the United States Space Weather Forecast Center (SWPC), This fact causes a wide area of communication through “radio HF-high frequency”“Almost an hour.
Although this has not been verified, there is only a probability, experts say NASA They reported it Solar storms can affect services Used daily on earth:
- GPS systems
- Mobile phone signal
- Satellite television
- Electrical networks
