Sunspot Explodes 17 Solar Flares And 2 Of Them Are Heading Towards Earth


NASA has observed many solar eruptions on the Sun's surface, which resulted in the emission of coronal mass ejections toward Earth.

Solar flares are being released by sunspot AR2975, which has been highly active over the last two days, erupting at least 17 times since March 28. Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) have been ejected in numerous directions, with some of the charged particles likely to strike Earth and trigger moderate to minor geomagnetic storms.

According to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, at least two CMEs are now on route to Earth, with a third perhaps on the way as well. According to SpaceWeather.com, the first CME is expected to arrive on March 31 and the second on April 1. As previously stated, authorities anticipate that the Sun explosions will generate G2/G3 geomagnetic storms, increasing the likelihood of auroras.
