Expert: Recent solar flare may cause magnetic storm
-
Sergey Bugtenchev, director of the Laboratory of Solar Astronomy at the Space Research Institute, points out that the solar flare that occurred on May 29, which resulted in the ejection of solar mass, may cause a magnetic storm.

According to the expert, this flare will affect the Earth and may cause a magnetic storm of moderate intensity.

He says: “It appears that the previous area 3664 (new number - 3697) will hit the Earth on the first attempt. The flare resulted in the ejection of a large mass (which in itself is an interesting event). Moreover, although the flare occurred at an angle of about 70 degrees from the direction towards the Earth, but the opening of the cone into which the plasma clouds were ejected exceeds this angle.”

He adds, explaining: “The video clips clearly show that the mass is directed at the satellite that is photographing it, that is, in fact, at the Earth. It is possible that the cloud will reach the Earth on Friday/Saturday night, that is, the night of May 31/June 1.”

According to him, the magnetic storm may last 10-20 hours, and will be of medium intensity from G2 to G3, and it is expected that on Friday evening we will see the aurora borealis phenomenon.
