NASA found a Hole on the Surface of the Sun

NASA’s Solar Dynamic Observatory has detected a large ‘coronal hole’ in the Sun’s outer atmosphere, called the corona. A stream of charged particles is emanating from this open hole in the southern region of the Sun. They can collide with the Earth’s atmosphere.


Big solar storm can hit the earth

Scientists have warned that due to the changes taking place on the surface of the Sun, a big solar storm could hit the Earth. According to scientists, a hole has been seen on the surface of the Sun i.e. the corona. There is a continuous shower of charged particles from this hole. These particles are likely to hit the Earth’s atmosphere.


There may be slight geomagnetic movement

According to the report of Spaceweather, due to this, there may be some minor geomagnetic movement in the Earth’s magnetosphere. Aurora effect can be generated in the polar regions due to the current moving towards the Earth. Due to this, green light can be seen in the sky of the North and South Poles.


Solar storm will be strongest in 2025

Bill Murtagh, a program coordinator at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center, said that we have seen very little movement in the sun over the past several years. This mostly happens during solar minimum, but now we are moving fast towards solar maximum. This will be the fastest in the year 2025.


GPS navigation interrupted

Due to solar storms, the outer atmosphere of the Earth can be heated, which can have a direct effect on satellites. This can cause interference with GPS navigation, mobile phone signals and satellite TV. The current in power lines can be high, which can also blow transformers. Although this is rarely the case because the Earth’s magnetic field acts as a protective shield against it.
