Space warning as solar storm on DIRECT HIT with Earth TOMORROW

The event has just been upgraded from a G1 to a G2 class geomagnetic storm and could mess with spacecraft navigation, damage transformers, and wreak havoc with migrating birds’ sense of direction.

Solar wind escaping from a hole in the sun’s atmosphere will travel through space to reach Earth tomorrow and build in intensity on October 8.

A NASA observatory captured an image of the large canyon-shaped hole yesterday – and it is directly facing Earth.

This gap is known as a cornoral hole and this one is massive, stretching more than 500,000 miles from the sun’s north pole to its southern hemisphere.
