    Massive solar storm that will slam Earth TOMORROW could knockout power supplies, damage satellites and trigger stunning auroras
    • Nasa spotted a solar flare releasing a coronal mass ejection earlier this week
    • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a 'G1' storm watch
    • It coincides with the formation of 'equinox cracks' in the sun, which form around the equinoxes on March 20 and September 23 and weaken the magnetic field

    A huge solar storm is heading for Earth, and it's likely to hit tomorrow.

    The storm could knockout satellites, disrupt power supplies and spark stunning displays of the Northern Lights.

    It was created last week by an enormous explosion in the sun's atmosphere known as a solar flare, and charged particles from that flare are now on their way to our planet.

    The arrival of the solar storm coincides with the formation of 'equinox cracks' in Earth's magnetic field, which some scientists believe form around the equinoxes on March 20 and September 23 each year.

    These cracks weaken our planet's natural protection against charged particles and could leave commercial flights and GPS systems exposed to the incoming storm.

    The cracks also mean stargazers are more likely to catch glimpses of the Northern lights this week.

    This may include parts of Scotland and northern England, as well as the 'northern tier' of the US including parts of Michigan and Maine.

    Yes, but that was just my attempt at humor that there would be a great big Fireball that would just hit Washington DC only.

    MSM and the dumbs will be reporting it's Trumps fault. Of course the Russians will have colluded with him.

    Its already worse than y2k. I spent y2k on a beach in Puerto Rico drinking rum drinks and went to bed after the lights didn't go out. Today I've been working all day waiting for the lights to go out. Much worse.

    I would miss none of that. All about "One dog, One bone".

    None of my family takes Meds, have not been to a hospital in many years, Money does nothing but piss me off and I do not watch Porn. My imagination is all I need!
