What is a Solar Storm?
A solar storm is a disturbance of the sun. It could span the entire heliosphere and potentially affect the entire solar system, including the Earth and its magnetosphere.
Solar storms occur as a result of various space weathers and climates.
Is it dangerous to humans?
Eruptions and disturbances from the Sun can affect the atmosphere, such as satellites, power grids, and radio communications, but they do not harm people.
There is no risk of radiation damage from this solar storm.
What Happens During a Solar Storm?
Some have called this the “Internet Apocalypse”, but this is just a dramatization of the possible loss of Internet connectivity for hours.
When solar storms hit the Earth’s magnetic field, wireless communications and power grids are affected. Power outages and radio outages can occur for hours, even days. It’s also possible that your WiFi network behaves strangely and claims to be connected when you aren’t.
But hey, not having an internet connection might be a good reason to go outside and watch the Northern Lights.

Hopefully the skies will be clear and the light pollution will be avoided. Keep your eyes on the sky from 10pm Thursday night to 2am until early Friday morning.
