During the coming hours, the Earth will witness a strong solar storm following a large explosion in the solar disk, which led to the issuance of warnings, the first of their kind in 20 years.

The storm is likely to cause interference with electricity networks, communications and navigation systems, and its impact on the Earth's magnetic field is likely to continue for hours after it ends.

Given that solar activity has been very strong recently, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which monitors space weather, issued an unusual storm warning on Thursday, which was upgraded to a larger warning on Friday, the first of its kind in 20 years.

Earlier, the Solar Astronomy Laboratory at the Russian Academy of Sciences announced the recording of a solar explosion of category X3.9, the most powerful of its kind during the past 25 years.

Laboratory head Sergey Pugachev said that a very strong magnetic storm began on Earth, which could last from 20 to 40 hours.

During strong magnetic storms, people may feel headaches, weakness, high blood pressure, and insomnia. Scientists attribute this to the fact that when the magnetic field fluctuates, capillary blood flow slows down and a lack of oxygen occurs.

It should be noted that the most prominent solar storm recorded in history occurred in 1859, known as “Carrington,” which lasted for about a week, leading to the appearance of an aurora that extended to Hawaii and Central America and affected hundreds of thousands of miles of telegraph lines.
