If a huge solar storm hits Earth, THIS is how terrifying it will be
The Sun has entered a new solar maximum phase, which is characterised by higher activity that leads to frequent shooting out of coronal mass ejection
That means the threat of a huge solar storm striking Earth has increased significantly.
Apart from minor incidents of temporary loss of mobile network or cautionary electricity supply cut off, the only way we remember a solar storm or a geomagnetic storm is by aurora borealis or northern lights
These fantastic patterned lights cover the entire sky near the northern hemisphere displaying beautiful colours.
But if the intensity of the solar storm was really high, the same solar storm could have a horrifying effect.
History is filled with such examples, with the most renowned one being the Carrington Event.
