A report has been released on the Twitter account called Halo CME, which states that a large solar storm is moving towards the Earth, which is also called Solar Tsunami. It is certain to be a G1-G2 class solar storm, but it cannot be denied that it can turn into a G-3 class solar storm as well. Spaceweather also took it Prediction is of. It will collide with the Earth’s magnetic field and this can damage the Earth’s communication system and satellites.
CME WATCH: Hello CME, technically speaking. This was from the eruption/type II radio burst this morning from AR 13060 (not 10360, a typo in my previous post). It is so diffuse that we need difference images (right) to see it. This could be just a shock wave without a flux rope. pic.twitter.com/wa9F0mfQ7P

NASA says that the sun completes a solar cycle of 11 years. That is, this solar cycle starts once and lasts for 11 years. In this cycle, solar activity first increases and then decreases. As the cycle nears its end, there is a marked reduction in activity. The highest point of activity is called solar maximum, when activity such as solar storms increases the most. In 2023, the sun will be in its solar maximum phase, it is being said.
Scientists say that as the solar maximum begins to approach, seasonal activities begin to intensify due to the sun in space. The solar storm currently hitting the Earth is being described as a G3 class. A G3 class solar storm is likely to cause minor damage to satellites, and may also cause interference with GPS etc. While G5 class solar storms can destroy power grids, cause widespread fires and damage electronic gadgets.
