The Jeddah Astronomical Society said on its official Facebook page that expectations are high for the possibility of a strong geomagnetic storm, G3, tomorrow, Saturday, October 30, 2021.

The Astronomical Society said in its report that the ionized gas cloud known as the “Coronal Mass Emission” was ejected yesterday by an “x” glow in the sun, which indirectly led to a geomagnetic storm. The Earth’s magnetic field.

He explained: “Such storms cause the appearance of aurora lights, and they are found in the extreme south of the North Pole, typically 50 degrees of geomagnetic latitude, knowing that the intensity of the geomagnetic storm will decrease on Sunday, and there may be other storms from the lower G1 and G2 types, so you can still use Aurora Borealis. Can be seen, and no damage or damage to the planet.

The Society further stated in its report: “The record of coronal mass emission shows the ejection of the largest solar dot AR2887 into space yesterday, and according to the measurements of the Soho Space Laboratory, this emission is rapidly erupting from the Sun at a speed of more than 1260 kilometers per second.”

Last May, NASA announced that the Earth was exposed to a strong solar storm, resulting in a geomagnetic storm traveling at a speed of 1.3 million kilometers per hour, according to NASA, an automated program. In monitoring the movement of comets, solar storms and activities occurring in space.
