Earth appears to have gone through some sort of unusual solar storm detected by the SOHO Lasco C3 instrument 72 hours ago as a 120ft wide asteroid nearly misses the planet yesterday!
The Earth protects itself from solar storms using an invisible shield known as the ‘magnetosphere’.
But because Earth’s magnetic poles are continually moving, the magnetosphere is weakening.
This means our planet is increasingly vulnerable to the potentially devastating effects of solar flares and storms, scientists said to the dailymail.
I wonder if the unusual solar storm had anything to do with the massive thunderstorms that lasted a few hours over Wales England and most notably in Norway where all those reindeer died due to lightning strikes.
