High latitude aurora warning
SpaceWeather.com This morning (September 1, 2021) says two huge bubbles of super-hot gas from our sun – otherwise known as coronal mass ejections or coronal mass ejections. CME’s – towards the ground. There is no danger to us on Earth. These coronal mass ejections are not powerful enough to hit satellites or power grids. But they are about to “joke” our planet’s magnetic field, creating a beautiful display of the aurora borealis at high latitudes. SpaceWeather said:
Estimated time of arrival: 1-2 September. Meteorologists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) expect strong geomagnetic storms like Category G2. This means that people as far south as Idaho and New York (55° geomagnetic latitude) can see the aurora borealis.
Early last week, sun-watchers began noticing an increase in solar activity as Active Solar Region 12860 (AR 2860) produced 8 Class C solar flares. UTC (1:30 a.m. EDT) The largest area produced M4.7 Solar flare. The glow was clearly visible at 131 . A The wavelength ranges from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. It showed that solar plasma temperatures are in excess of 10 million degrees. The event caused a slight radio dimming on the sun-facing side of the Earth (see image below). This event triggered a coronal mass ejection (CME) targeting Earth. However, this continuous medical treatment was not expected to have such a large effect on the Earth region.
Now 2 CME is on the way
But later that day, a room climate explained, huge strings Magnetism erupted on the sun. This huge arc of electrified gas in the Sun’s atmosphere produced the second largest mass on Earth. Now, the two CMEs are moving side by side through space to Earth. SpaceWeather said:
NOAA viewers expect CME to deliver a double whammy separated by hours. The first CME can teach a minor G1 is great A geomagnetic storm late September 1. The second CME can intensify the storm, making it rather strong G2 . class It happened on September 2.
Storms like these do not damage power grids or satellites. However, they can produce beautiful auroras at high latitudes. Light show is possible in Scandinavia, Iceland, Canada and even some North American countries.

Aurora Alert. Here’s the AR 2860 on August 30
Conclusion: Aurora Alert. Two AR 12860 CME cross space toward Earth and are expected to create a stunning display of the aurora borealis at high latitudes.
