NASA: Solar Flares Could Disrupt Power & Communications


No worries, earth will not be destroyed tomorrow.

NASA reports that two massive solar flares erupted from the Sun yesterday, each paired with a Coronal Mass Ejection. The two CMEs are heading towards Earth and are expected to hit in the wee hours of the morning on March 8.  The first CME is travelling towards Earth at speeds greater than 1300 miles per second, and the second is travelling at about 1100 miles per second.
