SOLAR winds ejected from a monstrous gash in the surface of the sun are barrelling towards Earth and scientists have warned to prepare for a solar storm tomorrow.

A solar storm alert is in affect for Tuesday April 10 and Wednesday April 11, the US Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) warned.

Scientists at the SWPC have observed a hole in the surface of the sun, which has opened up this weekend to release a “high speed stream of activity”.

The agency said: “A G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm watch has been issued for April 10 and 11 2018 due to the arrival of a negative polarity coronal hole high speed stream.”

The storm’s strongest impacts are expected to be felt across Tuesday and Wednesday “primarily poleward of 60 degrees Geomagnetic Latitude”.

People have been warned to expect weak power fluctuations and minor impacts on satellite operations.

The SWPC added: “Aurora may be visible at high latitudes, that is, northern tier of the US such as northern Michigan and Maine.”

The gigantic coronal hole in the sun’s surface was captured today by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

Coronal holes like this occasionally open up in the burning star’s magnetic field, releasing large amounts of charged particles and solar winds.
