Sunday, August 1 a solar flares storm began and triggered a coronal mass ejection, and it is expected to hit the earth Tuesday and Wednesday night, August 3 and 4, 2010 and light up the northern skies.
Northern states (Oregon, Montana, North Dakota, etc.) in the US should be able to see the lights in the sky weather permitting. A solar flare is large explosion in the sun’s atmosphere that releases energy.
A “solar tsunami” eruption of plasma on the surface of the sun will lead a shower of ionized atoms to strike the Earth Tuesday or Wednesday night.
The satellites will not be able to work properly and it would result in a number of problems. The mobile service would become a bit slow and to some extent unresponsive. The other communication like transfer of live TV transmission and other stuff related to satellites shall be slowed down. Even the people who use cable TV shall also suffer some problems in their transmission as the cable service is also connected to satellites.
