Magnetic storms in February – after a solar flare, the Earth was covered by a magnetic storm – how long will it last


The other day, scientists announced a powerful flare on the Sun. Its strength was estimated as X3.3-class flare – this is considered one of the strongest indicators. The outbreak has already caused problems with radio communications in the southern hemisphere. The stream of particles from the Sun managed to reach our planet – in the coming days, the Earth will be covered by a magnetic storm.

According to the Meteoagent research portal, which tracks the time and strength of magnetic storms, the K-index of geomagnetic activity will reach a high of 5 points today. And on February 13, it will increase to 6 points out of 9 possible. The magnetic storm will subside on Thursday, February 15, then the K-index will return to safe values.
