Strong G3 Geomagnetic Storm In Progress (KP7)

 

The increase in Geomagnetic Activity is due to a Coronal Mass Ejection

CMEs, or Coronal Mass Ejections, are enormous bursts of superheated gas (called plasma) ejecting from the sun. They are powerful eruptions driven by kinks in the solar magnetic field.

As Earth’s magnetosphere continues to wain (due to both the GSM and Magnetic Excursion), CMEs will have a bigger impact on our modern way of life.

Perversely, a reduction in solar activity weakens Earth’s magnetic field but powerful CMEs can still occur, meaning we’ll be hit when our shields are down.
