NOAA forecasters estimate a greater than 25% chance of geomagnetic storms on June 9th. That’s when a Coronal Mass Ejection from the solar flare of June 7th is expected to deliver a glancing blow to Earth’s magnetic field. Thankfully this won’t be a direct hit so minimal problems are expected.
Of course it takes some time before the CME his the earth’s magnetic field; the sun is 93 million miles away from earth. Unfortunately it’s not strong enough to produce the aurora in our area.
