Sun burst triggers moderate solar storm warnings this weekend

Intense geomagnetic storms are possible in the coming days as the Earth’s magnetic field is bombarded by a solar storm cloud.

Forecasters expect the worst of the solar storm to hit around Friday (July 22) at 8 p.m. EDT (July 23 at 0000 GMT) and well into the wee hours of Saturday (July 23). Meanwhile, a complete halo coronal mass ejectionor CME, will reach Earth’s magnetic field. Forecasts note that auroras may be visible much farther from the poles than their usual latitudes.
