Huge Magnetic Storm Could Wreak Havoc
A massive solar flare is unleashing a tremendous storm that could disrupt satellites and power grids.

Yesterday’s solar flares erupted from the giant active sunspot AR1429, which spewed an earlier X1.1-class flare on Sunday (March 4). The CME from that outburst mostly missed Earth, passing by last night at around 11 p.m. EST (0400 GMT March 7), according to the Space Weather Prediction Center, which is jointly managed by NOAA and the National Weather Service.
This means that the planet is already experiencing heightened geomagnetic and radiation effects in advance of the next oncoming CME.
