Tamitha Skov, the Space Weather Woman, reported yesterday:
Our Sun wakes up today launching 2 Earth-directed solar storms. Its a 1,2-punch!
Early NASA predictions indicate impact late on July 9 or early July 10. Storms are expected to be weak so effects at Earth may be moderate, but aurora could still reach mid-latitudes, especially if storming is extended over several days.
Expect amateur radio issues on Earth’s nightside, with auroral propagation possible!
GPS/GNSS reception is also expected to be glitchy, especially at high latitudes and anywhere near aurora!
