Mild Solar Storm Expected Sunday Morning

Space weather forecasters say the solar storm that seemed to be more fizzle than fury got much stronger in recent hours.

It is now the most potent solar storm since 2004.

So far, no power outages or other technological disturbances have been reported from the solar storm that started on Tuesday.

It reached Earth on Thursday morning at mild levels.

But for several hours early on Friday morning it turned strong.

Scientists say that is because the magnetic orientation of the storm flipped.

And more is coming. The US government's Space Weather Prediction Center says the same area of the sun erupted again on Thursday night, with a milder storm expected in the early hours of Sunday morning. Source
