Solar Flares and Solar Eruptions Impacting Earth

The sun is getting very active, says NASA and that could cause some problems here on Earth.

The space agency is alerting everyone that the sun’s activity level has suddenly increased.

They said the solar cycle isn’t even at its peak, and it’s already exceeding expectations.

Scientists are expecting to see more and more solar flares and solar eruptions which could impact radio communications, navigation signals, and electric power grids on Earth.

The increase in activity which also poses risks to spacecraft and astronauts, could impact GPS signals and even create concerns about flight crew and passenger health on airplanes.

NASA predicts that solar events will continue to increase from now into 2025.
