June 22nd 2015 Full Halo CME, Storm Warning: A coronal mass ejection (CME) is heading directly for Earth

It left the sun during the early hours of June 21st, and is expected to sweep up one or two lesser CMEs already en route, before it reaches Earth sometime on June 22nd. Click to view a movie of the “full-halo” CME

NOAA forecasters estimate a 90% chance of polar geomagnetic storms when the CME arrives. This doesn’t mean that a major space weather event is in the offing. The storm could be mild. It all depends on how the magnetic field of the CME connects to the magnetic field of Earth at the time of impact. According to NOAA, there’s only a 10% chance of nothing happening, so stay tuned.

  1. This one may be not too bad. But one day a CME will hit us and break power grids. The problem is that a Carrington level geomagnetic incident hasn’t happened since the 1850s, so hasn’t really registered on our consciousness or given us a good lot of hard data to properly assess the effects.

      You are a 100 per cent right. It’s amazing how troubling it is to be without any electricity. Everything is working with this source of energy, without it we are lost!
