Big CME headed towards Earth.

Sunspot 1577 generated a long duration C3.7 solar flare which hurled a coronal mass ejection (CME) almost directly toward Earth on September 28. Proton levels reached the S1 Minor Radiation Storm level soon after the event. The proton event linked to the C3.7 flare is officially over, but the proton level remains high and might go up again during the next 48 hours.

CME cloud is expected to reach our planetary magnetic field around midday on September 30,  primarily impacting poleward of 55 degrees geomagnetic latitude. NOAA/SWPC forecasters estimate a 50% chance of strong geomagnetic storms around the polar circles with predicted G2 geomagnetic storming level.

This means that earthquakes are going to increase over the next day or so in frequency and intensity.

And satellite disruption will happen as well, so when foxtel drops out you will know why, and the aurora’s will also be stronger.
