Giant coronal hole on the sun sparks geomagnetic storm on Earth

A giant coronal hole in the sun’s atmosphere is spewing solar wind toward Earth.

Traveling faster than 600 km/s (1.3 million mph), the solar wind stream reached our planet on Sept. 24th and produced awesome geomatic storms around the world.

Traveling faster than 600 km/s (1.3 million mph), the leading edge of the solar wind stream has reached Earth on Sept. 24th, bringing some spectacular aurora around the world.

The chances of geomagnetic storms is increasing on September 25th, as Earth moves deeper into the stream. So keep your eyes up to the sky, you may observe some other autumn auroras.
