The solar wind penetrated the weakened magnetic field of the Earth, which caused a geomagnetic storm. Today, a magnetic storm has reached K-index 5, which corresponds to a small geomagnetic storm.
As the high-speed solar wind continues to flow, a geomagnetic storm will continue tomorrow, April 21.
– The impact area is mainly at the poles of 60 degrees geomagnetic latitude.
– Induced currents – slight fluctuations in the power supply network may occur.
– The spacecraft is possibly a minor impact on the operation of satellites.
– Aurora-aurora can be seen at high latitudes, that is, in the North tier of the United States, such as Northern Michigan and Maine.
