Take note of how you feel on March 18, 2018, and if there are any strange glitches to your technological devices because guess what? A solar storm is coming and its bound to hit earth in an interesting way.

Like everything else in the universe, our bodies and experiences are closely connected to other things in our environment, from energy passing between people to the changes of the seasons affecting our moods. Once you start paying attention to just how connected you are with nature, it’s hard not to notice it! So, get ready for some major changes heading your way – we explain why.

What You Need to Know About Solar Storms

Scientifically known as a geomagnetic storm, a solar storm is a temporary disturbance on the Earth’s magnetic field caused by radiation and streams of charged particles from the sun. (1) This storm happens due to what’s called Coronal Mass Ejections (CME), which are clouds of plasma released alongside solar flares. When they hit the earth, it what causes the magnetic field to behave wildly.

The exact power of the storm won’t be known until it hits, and when that happens, it can also strengthen or weaken in intensity.

What does that mean for us? Well, when a solar storm occurs (which its forecasted to happen this weekend), it can shut down your electronics because of its interference with satellites, GPS, and other communication systems. Also, it can potentially harm your health.

Effects of Geomagnetic Storms on Your Health

Technology isn’t the only thing that gets hit by solar storms; your health does too. In the past, increased risk of stroke, and intensity in migraine headaches have been reported. Also, disruptions to sleep cycles have been correlated with solar flares. Finally, geomagnetic storms have been associated with depression, confused thinking, and erratic behavior.  In other words, solar storms can cause many physical discomforts.

So, if you find yourself behaving oddly this weekend, there’s a chance that it’s due to the solar storm. As an interesting fact, this upcoming solar storm is the third one to happen this year. You may not have noticed any difference in your behavior and technological glitches with the previous ones because they were mild. That’s to be expected for the rest of the year with the sun predicted to have a quiet activity period throughout 2018.

According to NASA, the upcoming storm will not be as powerful as the last “solar maximum” that happened in 2014, and thus, you shouldn’t worry too much about it.

How Will You Know if The Solar Storm is in Effect?

Here’s something you may not have known. The phenomenon of the aurora borealis, or northern lights, is actually caused by the ejection of magnetic radiation from the sun, which is the same as a solar storm. It’s a common occurrence, so if you’ve seen the northern lights before, then you’ve witnessed the effects of a solar storm. Just ask Quebec residents of 1989 when most of the province was affected by a solar storm blackout, and the northern lights could be seen as far south as Texas.

Conclusion

Let us know if this information served you well in understanding geomagnetic storms and how the northern lights come about in relation to it. Share this information with your friends and family so they too can know that odd behavior or irregular sleep patterns can be attributed to the effects of a solar storm.
