Two solar flares are headed toward Earth

Two strong solar flares are racing toward Earth, which could create power grid fluctuations and produce dazzling auroras.

A Geomagnetic Storm Watch was issued after NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded an X1.0 solar flare and a second one on Independence Day. 

The NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center forecasts the solar flares to reach Earth’s atmosphere by late Thursday or early Friday, leading to potential auroras and weak power grid fluctuations.
