Those who look at the sky in the northern latitudes of the United States can enjoy the beautiful northern lights From Wednesday night to early Thursday, then The Sun will release two large bursts of energy toward Earth during a solar storm.

The Sun’s activity is expected to peak early Thursday morning, when a strong geomagnetic storm (rated 3 out of 5) will reach the Earth’s magnetic field.

In the United States, the aurora borealis can be seen as far south as Oregon, and possibly as far north as California, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and Massachusetts.

Cloud cover from parts of the upper Midwest to the northeast may prevent you from enjoying the northern lights, but the sky should be clear over most of the plains north to the Rocky Mountains. The cloud cover of the sky will vary in the Pacific Northwest.

What is cannibal coronal mass ejection?

A celestial spectacle not normally seen at low latitudes was caused by an eruption of a volcano that occurred in one sunspot, which on Monday released charged particles toward Earth.

On March 28, 2022, sunspot AR2975 unleashed a frenzy of solar flares, more than 17 in total. There were 11 class C and 6 class M intrusions. At least two full-halo CMEs (coronal mass ejections) emerged from the chaos.

A coronal mass ejection (or CME) is a giant cloud of solar plasma moistened by magnetic field lines that is often ejected from the Sun during strong, long-lasting solar flares and filamentous flares.

Cannibal CMEs are rapid coronal mass ejections that sweep away the slower coronal mass ejections in front of them.

Monday’s first solar flare surpassed the second, making it Coronal mass ejection cannibal.

in the United States, Those hoping to see the aurora borealis should be on the lookout after local dusk on March 30. Clear, dark skies, far from lit cities, are best for seeing the aurora borealis.
