North America will feel the impact more according Experts.
The world is poised to experience the most powerful solar flare in six years today, 8th March 2012. This is only the beginning of many strange things billed to happen in our solar system this year. There are a set of more active sunspots ready to hit earth soon after today’s solar storm. The storm may unleash a hail of charged particles that could disrupt power grids and air travel according experts.
NASA confirmed the eruption of the sun on Tuesday with the impact likely to be felt today according to weather experts and its effects could linger around until Friday. The solar storm is likely to last through Friday morning, but the region that erupted can still send more blasts our way longer than anticipated.
North America will feel more of the blasts of this solar storm but the good news coming from NASA is that this will not be a super solar storm and the fears about the disruption of power grids and air travel may be far fetched although there is a potential for widespread solar storm related problems.
