Unexpected Solar Wind Stream Hits Earth at 372 Miles Per Second

Posted by in category: futurism

On Sunday, Earth’s magnetic field was pelted by a solar wind stream reaching velocities of more than 600 kilometers (372 miles) per second.

While that’s nothing too alarming – solar storms often pummel our planet triggering spectacular auroras – what is weird is that this storm was totally unexpected.

This event was not in the forecast, so the resulting auroras came as a surprise,” SpaceWeather reported.
