A trio of major solar flares could spell trouble for Earth on Friday 13th, scientists have warned.
The solar events, captured on film by NASA, caused communications blackouts on Tuesday lunchtime – and there may be further consequences tomorrow.
“Impacts from this activity were short-lived and affected high-frequency communications for the day lit side of Earth at the time of the flare,” said a statement on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) website.
“A Coronal Mass Ejection associated with the activity has been observed moving at a flank from Earth and a glancing blow to Earth from this event is expected on June 13.”
A Coronal Mass Ejection releases vast amounts of matter and electromagnetic radiation – resulting in a threat to high-frequency communication systems used by weather stations, aviators, government time stations and international shortwave broadcasters, among others.
NASA says GPS can also be affected by solar flares.
