For science, predicting these types of events is very easy, but deciphering their impact is much more complicated. the space agency POT and the National Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) from the US reported that a solar storm, also known as a geomagnetic storm, was occurring in the US country of the Tuesday 19 July to last Thursday 21 July.

It is important to note that this effect occurs as a result of a flare up was launched on July 15 and noticed in different parts of the planet on July 21, according to the prediction model of the POT.
What is solar flare?
The flare triggered a coronal mass ejection (CMEfor its acronym in English), an expulsion from plasma and magnetic field of the sun’s atmosphere and its solar corona.
bliss Dough drives at an average speed of 500 kilometers per second, so it takes a few days to reach our planet. This burst of charged particles then collides with the Earth’s magnetic field and disrupts our atmosphere, creating a solar storm.

What effects did the solar storm leave behind?
For now No incidents were registered in large telecommunications systems and its effects have been noticed in the form of auroras, as can be seen in the video below. There were no major effects in humans either. However, the solar flare has reached our planet and was not that massive, hence the solar storm that is underway mild level (G1) has moderate (G2).
In this line, the Geophysical Institute of Peruindicated that the geomagnetic storm is expected to be moderate, both in the operations that the satellites normally carry out in orbit around the country as in the signals of broadcasting services and Geographic Positioning System.

What is a solar storm?
In short, a solar storm, or geomagnetic storm, is the disruption of the Earth’s magnetic field when it comes in contact with a large amount of energy from the Earth Sunoften due to coronal mass ejection.

Why do they arise?
It is about one freak formed in a small region of the Sun’s atmosphere consisting of a sudden burst of electromagnetic radiation and energy particles. Also known as solar storms, Rank 1 to 5 and they can suspect changes in the Earth’s atmosphere.
