Solar Flare Expected To Hit Earth On Friday The 13th

TAMPA (CBS Tampa) – This coming Friday the 13th not only comes with a full moon for the first time since October of 2000, it’s also accompanied by massive solar eruption that could disrupt global communication.

Astronomers have witnessed 3 extremely violent solar flares in recent days, each powerful blast of radiation was enough to cause brief disruptions in high frequency communications.

One of the flares caused a “coronal mass ejection,” says NASA; a highly charged plasma cloud that could come into contact with Earth’s atmosphere on Friday.

NOAA’s Space Prediction Center warns that it could be powerful enough to cause communications blackouts and interfere with satellite signals, such as GPS.
